So, as I was saying last night, when we say that we like the Artwork or not, what we're really saying is whether we like the Artist's Personality or not. Whether we like the Artist or not.
That's probably why the Artist takes people's reactions so personally. Why we want people to like 'our Artwork'. Because what it's really saying is whether or not you like Me.
I usually get my accollades through my pictures. That's probably why I keep doing it. Here are some of my pictures. One is from a company-party who hires me back again every year. The other is a party where they really want me to stay overtime - but all I could give them was an extra half-hour because I was already committed to going to a 2nd party that day:
And I wonder, why do we like one style more than another? 'Confidence' is admirable, but so is 'trying'. Why wouldn't I, for instance, not like the 'trying-too-hard' style that I mimicked for you last night? What's wrong with that? What's wrong with a person who really Wants to do well, who focuses on it so intensely.
Even some grown-ups and senior-citizens fall into the school-age crap about 'liking the cool kid'. And some like 'safe' - classical and reserved - just doing it right with nothing new added. Just like 'the Artist is always drawing herself', we could also say that 'the Viewer is always seeing himself'. It's the Viewer's Personality that determines whether or not he likes what the Artist does.
Art is so personal. Bringing it 'out there' is really taking a chance. Hoping for Love. Or at least, acceptance.
Thank you to all the Wonderful People that I meet while doing this.
And just as important as being accepted by You, I hope I can also love my Artwork, no matter how my experiences leave me drawing. (And no matter how my experiences make me look, I hope I will always love and care for what what I see.)
