This Week I've Exercised My Hand On Both Large & Small Scale Canvases. Even Chose Different Subjects In The Process. Sometimes I Feel Pinned In When Sticking To One Subject For Too Long. Switching Gears Gives Me An Opportunity To Explore..Also Helps Me Remember The More Complicated Brush Strokes That Are Required With "Figurative" Pieces Versus What I Like To Call My "Fun & Relaxed Art".
See What I Mean? Even Though My Style Changes With Each Painting Process..I Feel I'm Capable Of Both. So Why Not "Enjoy" Both? Some Artists Choose To Stick With "One Singular Style" So Their Work Can Easily Be Recognized. I Suppose It's All A Matter Of What A Person Is Actually Striving For. Personally..I Strive To Fully Enjoy My Experience Behind The Brush. Anything Else That Follows Is A Gift..A Bonus..Icing On An Already Wonderful Experience.
These Days I'm Learning To Ignore The Critics..To Step Back And Examine Why Others Criticize To Begin With. The Way I See It..Even Great Artists Like Claude Monet..Georgia O'Keefe and Countless Others..Had Their Critics. It's Evident That Their Work, Their Talent and Their Legacies Survived It.
I'm Linking Today With Sweet Jennifer From Studio JRU. She's A Lovely Artist Whose Work Is Filled With Such Sweetness, Peace And Joy. Sending Love And Hugs Of Glorious Georgia Sunshine To Anyone Who May Have Popped By.
