Artists do not know the piece that will unlock fame, so they pour their being into every piece.
They understand that in the lottery of breakthroughs, it is wise to prepare every piece that gets drawn to bear their signature with pride.
Even though each piece holds a part of them, very few pieces hold their hearts. Interestingly, their favourite intentionally crafted pieces are not as well received as their playful pieces.
Ask any artist about their favourite piece, and you will be shocked at how far it is from the limelight, mostly overlooked by all but the artist.
That is the cross of art. You never know how your creation will fare in the real world. Your best bet is to always give each creation all that is required to at least get out of the door, and leave the door open to receive them back no matter how they fared.
