Being an artist takes a lot of heart and dedication. There’s nothing easy about this path. It’s filled with constant failures and a whole lot of self doubt. You begin to question whether your work is good enough? Every day you become your worst criticizer. But once you learn to breathe and not let the outside pressures eradicate your passion, things go a lot smoother.
Josue S. is a great artist. I’ve watched his passion grow and grow over the last couple of months. And his work only gets better with time. It’s beautiful to watch someone so passionately work because you get to see a little piece of their soul through their work. You get a sense of their happiness. I’ve witnessed the hours and dedication of what it takes Josue to make a single painting, not a lot of people are willing to put in that much effort. But in order to stand out amongst the crowd, Josue is willing to do whatever it takes.
Regardless of what art you decide to take on, there will never be an easy route. Everything takes hours and hours of practice until you finally get a sense of the craft. Once you get a feeling for the art you can begin to tweak little things here and there to finally master something. Like Malcom Gladwell said in his book Outliers, “Ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness.” so if you aren’t ready to put in that much time and effort then you have to re-analyze what it is you are meant to be doing. You have to remember that there are millions of people around the globe trying to be an artist, so you have to do everything in your power to stand out amongst the crowd. And Josue understands that. That is why he works day and night trying to inspire the world through his art.
