I paint and draw quite a lot, and up until a year ago, I only painted (boring) portraits, or things people asked me to paint without really putting in my personality. Now, I started painting environmentalist, sinister, sometimes surreal motives which seem to repel people because of the gloomy atmosphere. Even when I try to paint something happy (gross) it winds up being dark on some level. I'm very passionate about art as long as I paint what I want (art class was terrible because of that) but I feel like those won't sell. It's not like I do art for a living, but I'm thinking of pursuing that (in an activist way) to fund projects for instance. Anyway, long story short: Do you think I have to rethink my painting style, or can I even make something out of it?
