If you paint flowers, you might be just the best flower painter in the whole world—but realistic flower paintings have been done, a lot. It’s pretty tough to make a living doing that. You’re competing against all of the other artists who make realistic flower paintings and all of the photographers that take pictures of flowers. How in the world do you stand out and be noticed and remembered?
I don’t worry about the competition, I know that I have a unique way of seeing flowers.
The real challenge is to work on that special voice every day.
After all, everybody loves flowers.
