Reaching out.

3 Sep

When we create art, it is an internal process. It is very hard to share the making of art, even when it is a collaboration. We can cooperate with others, but the creation is internal. So it is a lonely thing. And often people around us don’t get it, especially when they don’t make art.

The best way to share ideas and understand our creative selves is to reach out to other artists. You want to find people whose work you admire. Tell them. It doesn’t hurt. Don’t pretend to admire anything. Just say what you think.

If you like another artist for his or her thinking or personality, base any friendship on that. There is such a wide variety of tastes, someone will probably like what they are doing, even if it is only their mother.
