“The only thing worse than seeing yourself as a work of art is seeing your work as a work of art.
When I was in college, a friend of mine asked me what I thought of a quote by a modern-day American artist. I was dumbfounded.
It’s not that she’s not a modern-day artist, but that I’m a modern-day painter. She’s never seen me painting in my life, she just doesn’t know what I’m thinking. I guess it’s just because she thinks you’re a painter.
You are not a painter, and you never will be. The reason I say that is because you are a work of art, which is different from painting, which is different from a work of art. A work of art is something that has been created by someone who has put their soul into it. If you are a painter, your goal is to capture the soul of a person and turn them into a painting on canvas.
I have heard the saying “you paint a picture of what you see, you paint a painting of what is there.
This is why I say you are nothing more than a painter, because everything you see is something you created, whether it looks like a painting or not. If you are a painter, your goal is to create a masterpiece.
I think it’s a little sad that some people are still so obsessed with the idea of creating a masterpiece. It’s not like it’s a requirement to have one.
The idea of creating a masterpiece is not one that I often hear people talk about. I think the majority of people can honestly look at this painting and say, “I didn’t do that,” like I didn’t paint this scene the way I did it. And this is where I do think the quote I’ve given you is really helpful.
Like I said before, we’re talking about the majority of people that can look at a painting and say, I dont paint this way, like I dont paint this scene the way I did it. And this is where I do think the quote Ive given you is really helpful.
So while I definitely wouldn’t want to say that I’m not a great portrait painter, I would say that I take a lot of pride in my work. I’m happy to share my work with you, but I’m also an artist that is so much more than a portrait painter. I’m a designer and I’m a storyteller.
