Photograph - Combination Of Acrylic Painting, Photography, And My Digital Magic Wand
These were words I wrote in a recent online discussion, in which the question posed was "Why do you want to be an artist?" This was my tongue in cheek response. A friend asked me to type it up for art.
Some of my experiences with artists are walls of judgement, about what it means to be an artist, what an artist is or isn't, what art is and isn't.
I define myself, I don't let people do it for me.
As long as I am an artist, which I expect will be a lifetime, I hope I never develop the stance that being an artist is without merit unless I am making a certain amount of money a year.
I believe any person who creates art is an artist.
People assign value to art, and to artists...but I am not an artist because someone else declares it, I am an artist because I create art.
I am blessed to know many great and encouraging artists as well. =D
