Deby,

You keep on keeping on. And, don't say you are too old! That's just the voices of others trying to label you, so they can place you in a box. I know, because I have to tell the voices to be quiet, myself!

Welcome to Artists Arise, Dan. It was an honor to do the interview with you last night. I really enjoyed it, and I was especially happy that you mentioned the patron concept. I do think that it's as needed today as it was in earlier times. The Patreon site has received great reviews and many artists are finally getting the support they've needed. It's interesting to me that the guy that started the site is a very successful musician, but he admits that even with his successes - he still struggles with the feast or famine scenario. I think that's true for many artists - even the successful ones. In the creative world finances seem to come in chunks. It takes a very disciplined person with great budget skills to stretch the funds till the next chunk comes in. This is a huge issue creatives face when making a living with their art.

Deby - I'm so delighted we stumbled on the Patreon.com discussion.  What a great concept.  It certainly embraces the way artists were supported in earlier times.

Thanks again for a great interview last night!

Hey Melissa and Michael. Thank you for the kind comments. 

Melissa, the story was from speaking at a college in Denmark. The president said that they are warriors from birth, but the subsidies have taken the 'fight' out of the Danish people. He said that they were now lazy and he envied what we had as Americans - the will to fight for our passions.

I'm honored to be an encouragement to you. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Michael, the site is https://www.patreon.com/  I think it's fabulous!! I've actually created a page for my art, but haven't launched it yet. At first I thought . . . I'm too old for this . . . it's for younger people. Now I think . . . .what the heck . . . why not . . .

Deby,
Thanks so much for your testimony and story. Was that Patreon you mentioned toward the end?
All the success to you.

Deby, thank you for sharing your heart and your path. I wasn't able to listen to the whole call, but I'm looking out for the replay.  Your story from your speaking engagement in Europe (did you say it was Scotland?) about the government giving the artists subsidies and subsequently the artists losing their drive to fight for their art- that struck a nerve in me. Makes me value the struggle a bit more; to see the value in the beautiful fight.

Thank you for sharing your heart and your pain- I want a "clear" path as an artist but the longer I do this, the more I see I can't predict what will happen or what I will go through. It's a bit daunting at times; you help me be brave at going down the path and letting go of control (or the perception of it!)

Deby, how fun! I'm looking forward to it :)
