“My name is Alex Albert. As some of you may know, I have recently decided to pursue my love of painting. For the past few years, I have been in limbo in respect to my professional life and pursuing a career path that I wasn’t passionate about. I decided to pursue something I knew I couldn’t live with out – abstract painting.
Yes, I know the perception of the starving artist and I’m not going to lie there’s definitely truth to that. It can be a very hard journey as an artist. Some days I think to myself a traditional job would just be easier, but in the same breath I think about how I feel when I’m painting. I feel joy, fulfillment, and pure bliss; and I doing so, I am in the best position and state of mind to share this joy with the world. Not putting my best foot forward into pursuit of a career in painting would be the greatest regret of my life.”
