One question I often get asked with my artwork is how do I start? How do I know what to paint, where to put my photos, or what quote to choose? Unfortunately, I don't know what I want to do when I start.
I look at what supplies I want to use, hit my stash, and just start playing. That makes art so beautiful because it plays out right before your eyes.
I am also a person who loves being messy. I don't worry about mishaps. I also don't take much time deciding what paint, image, or words to use; I see it and immediately start to use it. I just jump right into it.
It's the same with how do I know when I am finished? I knew it was done for this specific piece (photo above) when the quote matched the art and image I wanted to reflect. I love it when I am finished "playing" and look at it and am happy with what I just created.
The more you regularly take time to play and explore, the more confident you become in your choices. I'm still a beginner but love making time to "art" daily. I am now at a point where I am comfortable with calling myself an artist.
Now it's your turn, you are...
