Today I realized something. Upon seeing the amazing work in the scholarship show, and my classmates work. I realized every single person has their own style, their own way to create things, and they’re okay with that.
My problem was I always tried to be like other artists I wanted my work to be photograph like, or perfect, or soft, or whatever.
I never liked what I had and I didn’t have a style. I focused way too much on what I wanted my work to be over focusing on making the actual work.
I’ve come to realize my drawing/ painting style is sketchy, messy, crazy, intense, so why should I be ashamed of that? It reflects who I am, and why am I striving to create photographic work? No one can unless you’re a camera and even then it projects imperfect subject matter.
Nothing is perfect and I think I forgot all along that’s what makes art so wonderful, it shows “imperfections” as being beautiful.
