Hey all,

I just want to say a BIG thank you for all of the kind words & encouraging feedback I've been getting from you guys about my latest work.  'Hi', to all of my new Watchers too!  It's been a blast to hear from so many of you & I'm happy that my latest personal work has been well received :)  Many of you will know I haven't done a great deal of personal painting over the past year or so.  It was a definite struggle to get back into.  I even sat my artists pride to one side & sought out a Mentor, which became an incredibly positive step.  Pete, was able to help me rediscover what 'I' enjoy creating from my own artwork rather than what I think other potential clients will like!  Don't get me wrong, it's important to do your research & to tailor your work to a clients needs or area of expertise, but that's NOT an absolute!  And how boring would your portfolio look anyway, hmm?  Creating art is often enough a difficult thing to do without us trying to second guess what somebody else is going to like (or not).  I mean, no two AD's in the same company is going to look at the same piece of art the same way!  They may appreciate your work for what it is- art!  But, each AD will have their own taste for what they believe will work for their product & what won't!  Approaching your art this way will only leave you feeling incredibly frustrated, lost no doubt with little or no inspiration left as all those second guesses mount up!  Our best work tends to come from what we love doing & what inspires us, so lets stick with that!

It's a short rant, but I hope some of you will find this little post helpful in someway.  We are all on our own journey, but we don't have to be alone walking it!

Cheers,

T
