|Painting from a photo by Leslie from A Creative Mint|
In reference to the top photo and the question on my mind... ARTISTIC STYLE. I feel drawn to paint in many ways, many mediums, many subjects. I like nature, city influences, patterns, country/cottage,homey. I look at the top photo and see a commonality in perhaps the color and paint application. I often wonder how well known artists crank out the same, same and stay inspired. And yet I know these artists are known for their particular thing... Kelly Rae Roberts for girls and words of hope, Marisa of Creative Thursday for her little characters, Geninne for her watercolor birds. And they are successful and their is art gorgeous. I wonder if their is a trade off between success and creative freedom?
Other things swirling, reading, loving....
*I have recently read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. Please get this if you ever deal with creative blocks. O.K. so everyone get it. :) He has a new book that I just began Do The Work, you can download it for free!
*Art and Soul Radio. I love, love, love listening to these shows! Yes, I think I am a bit addicted. I download them and listen as I am cooking dinner, walking, painting. I have learned so many things from each and every one!
*I am going to open an art shop soon, should I go to Etsy or Big Cartel?
And just to mention, this post was the last saved version I had before Blogger bit the dust for a bit so I don't remember how this post ended. :)
I hope you are enjoying the weekend.
