Creating a Vision - Perspectives No. 408
Creating a Vision
Everything we do is about choices. What we invite into our lives determines the course of them, often. The same goes for our art. We choose our subjects based on our experiences and preferences. Subconscious 'visual bias' is often the reason we select some subjects to paint and ignore others, time after time. Therefore, to fully explore our painting options, it is imperative that we become aware of our native preferences, and override them when a new subject beckons. This can be a little uncomfortable, but the pay-off is a world of new opportunities and visions to explore creatively.
