|Art for The Sake of Art|
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."~Edgar Degas~
OK, lets put on your artist's beret today and let's play artist. Please, just for one moment!
What is the first thing that you see here? Does it evoke emotion, good or bad? Do you consider this art or just a photograph? Would you display it in your home? Is it to pink, to pale, to close or to abstract? The answer to any of these questions, lies in the interpretation of the person viewing it! A dear friend asked me, how do you know when enough is enough when it comes to photo editing? I guess the answer to that is I don't really know! I just trust my skill and my instincts, when I think it looks good, then it is done!
Each and everyone of us has that ability! Oh, yes, yes, you do, you certainly know what you don't like, don't you? Doubtful, the question then becomes will it please others or meet up to someone else's standards? I think we must remember that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and that we certainly can't please everyone, trite maybe, but OH so true!
"Doubt, lends itself to fear, the single most obstacle for any project to materialize."
Watch children create, they are truly magic, they just grab and do, no fear, feet first so to speak. It's when we as adult's impose our rules on their creativity that they become doubtful!
I say color outside the lines, people! Now grab that palette and go for it!!
Have a wonderful day!
