I would say you can get self-confidence, recognition, and acknowledgment. Yes that is right, you can get all of this for .25$.
This morning I checked my phone as I do each morning. To my surprise I had a notification from Shutterstock.com, a web site where I had downloaded images to sell to individual or companies from all over the world. Of the approved photographs I had submitted last week, one had been purchased and my commission was .25$.
You may be asking yourself why would anyone put so much energy for so little reward? As an artist, I would say it is to get self-confidence, recognition and acknowledgement. Artist creates art in the hope that it will emit emotions whether positive or negative to its audience. How an artist can reach his or her audience is not always an easy task; therefore, getting a “hit” is enough to seduce the artist in believing in her creation and continue to seek the recognition.
Thank you to the “Lunenburg Dingy”. You have given me the confidences to continue doing what I love!
