If you have to have attention ALL the time, you’re not artistic, you can’t stand the solitary lifestyles, be willing to step away. I live with my boyfriend, my insane fluff ball of a cat, and two snakes.
It is my hope that my craft and my work will one day be the same thing and I can spend more time on my personal life.
In the autumn of 1884, the post-Impressionist painter, Vincent Van Gogh met Margot Begemann, a neighbor’s daughter who was ten years Van Gogh’s senior.
Margot often joined him on his painting forays and fell in love.
An artist is usually completely shocked you’re there with them and will want you in on all the gossip.
Because their work compels them, they might disappear for days at a time and re-emerge from their studio covered in paint, ink, dark circles, etc.
Artistic couple gone-wrong example #3: Vincent Van Gogh and Margot Begemann. My boyfriend knows when I ask him for some time to myself, he needs to grab the dog and go play in the garage for a bit or he needs to let me go hide for a while. Creativity doesn’t come when you’re playing 20 questions. There’s nothing worse about feeling bad about wanting their dreams. Artists are notoriously the worst judges of their own work. Not only that, but an artist appreciates an artistic person.
One prime example of financial incompatibility was the relationship between British author and poet, Lord Alfred Douglas, and the writer, Oscar Wilde.
