Controlling Your Art

Today's Image is my photo of blue irises
(because I decided and I'm in control)
One of the great things about art, about creating art, about rendering art, and about being an artist is that you are in control.

There are not many things in this world or in life over which you have complete control. But your art is one of those things.

You create it, you render it, you live with it. At times it may seem as if it controls you, but that’s not really the case. You can decide, you can select, you can add, you can subtract, you can change.

Oh sure, you may get criticized. Some (or many) may not like your work at all. Be that as it may. It’s your creation and yours alone.

Don’t forget the upside to this is that you are free to control how you want your art to appear, what mood you want your art to capture, how you want your art to be.
You and only you can give your art life. You are in total control.

Of course, there is a downside to all of this—there’s no one else with whom to share or to direct the blame...
Happy Painting!
