Why I’ve stopped painting!

My paint brushes stored

I haven’t been painting for more than two years now.  It has nothing to do with the lack of desire or inspiration, but more with practical reasons.  My paintings are piling up and I haven’t sold a painting for a while.  Why, you ask?  Besides actually creating art, an artist has to work hard to sell.  Because I simply don’t have the talent for salesmanship, I resort to posting my art on social media like Facebook and Instagram, and sites like ArtPal.  How effective these are remains to be seen.   So, until Lady Luck strikes or a strong wave of inspiration engulfs me, I won’t be painting anytime soon.
