Don't play it safe
Artist Keith Bond has written another good article on FineArtViews about taking chances as an artist with a list of suggestions. I liked the suggestion to talk about your art, try a new medium but especially learn more about your own medium. The way you learn about your medium? Show up and work every day. The showing up part can be the most difficult for me. Seems like all the "dailyness" of life interferes or trumps painting way too much. That's why I read the short articles Keith writes--as a reminder to keep working.
