Yeah I am drawn to art that is original and not a copy of some object or some thing like still life, portraits, flowers, animals, etc...dont get me wrong, it takes skill to "copy" these tings but its just copying and not the imagination of the artist.....originals shows the level of that artist's imagination and how creative they are...just my opinion
pple think I get my inspiration from where I live and its environment but I really dont think so...for the most part my art is really from my imagination....I dont like copying things like animals, flowers, etc per se....I like drawing them in my style....creating them as I go along....it challenges my imagination and are of my own originality....
Hi Renate....thank you for sharing your thoughts and your experience...I do appreciate you taking the time to share some encouragement to a fellow artisan....for me when there is no artistic spark I cant create anything at all....I have no interest in wanting to be creative whatever areas that may be....its the way Ive always been...old habits are so hard to break...other artists have given me many suggestions on how I could fuel my imagination and get back to art but its easier said than done...I cant even draw a straight line and be happy with it.....lol
Thank you for the suggestion....I do appreciate it....for me its not a matter of what do draw....I always have lots of ideas but its getting in the mood to draw...when I am not in the mood, I cant draw anything and even if I can draw something, Im not happy with it....nothing I do will satisfy me....so this is what I struggle with....I cant even draw a straight line and be happy with it....lol.....I do get inspired by touring the gallery but the mood is not there...ugh!!!
Yesterday we had a huge send off and welcoming of our CEOs at work so we created a ton or flower arrangements....me and couple of coworkers were in charge of decorations...we had so many compliments on the arrangements it was awesome....now they want to start a mini floral business...so this is the only "artsy" stuff I did recently....
