Artist within self previously undiscovered

During the pandemic, I was too focused on computer and app use and I developed carpal tunnel syndrome but then I found a way to make my own coloring pages and now I print them out in black and white and I use my child's markers, crayons and coloring pencils to bring the sketch to life! No design skills required, and my ability to bring life to a dull black and white picture is astounding! Also it takes a bit more concentration to blend the colors correctly sometimes it takes me a day or two to get a realistic looking final result. My favorite subject is flowers, and I am getting to know the botanical names for plants as a result. The next step will be to try to sell this art, as I have lost my job during the pandemic (the store I was working at was shut down) and this will bring in some extra cash if I can properly frame and present this art. I love coloring because no one bothers me while I am busy and I can forget my day to day life as I lose myself in the art I have created.

art in pure sense like on canvas is great I think but I came across those professions that are in "creative" field unlike STEM e.g. architecture, english, fine arts to be most spineless and underhanded people in my life. Perhaps because its all dwells things that are not absolutes so people can be very elitist only in their minds apart from reality and be very pretentious i.e. wear pretentious all black clothing and the like.

a positive posting among all the "people are shitty" posts. Unfortunately one reply was from one of the typical shit-on-everything people, but they're hard to avoid on here.
Happy colouring OP!
