I once read an art magazine article about a guy who had decided to become a painter and as a consequence started to live as isolated as he could from the rest of the world. He felt that every impression he got from anyone else distracted him from making his own personal art.
I think about his decision a lot. While I am extremely inspired by other people's art, it is easy for me to get stuck in the "inspiration phase".
I love to watch other people's art and I would love to be rich and buy loads of art from other artists.
But the time I spend getting inspired is time spent away from my own easel.
Perhaps one should try to live all alone in quietude for some time and see what happens?
I am so inspired right now. Need to by loads of art materials and start producing. I am loving the networks online. People from all over the world can come together and share ideas.
I love it. So no, I guess I won't go and hide somewhere. I will instead celebrate the global networks! Thank you, to all the pople of the world, for inspiring me. <3
