Look At Me Now
“Take action and evolve into the person you know you can truly be.”
I’m always trying to evolve and develop my artistic skills. Sometimes it takes a while to reach what I am ultimately trying to express. It may take several iterations over many months to finally be happy with a particular painting. I may even put the painting aside for months saying it is complete but knowing in my heart it is not quite there.
I believe as we experience life, we also evolve our thoughts and perspective, hopefully becoming a better self. We are gradually developing ourselves from within to be the best that we can be. This holds true for artists. Artists’ creations do not stay stagnant. Not just because practice makes perfect, but living life adds to who we are; and as an artist I think this is represented in our art.
This painting titled “Look at Me Now” is definitely a representation of my artistic expressiveness evolving. Just look at the before pic. Which by the way had a few iterations as well.
Now, look at this painting and see what it has become. I brought this painting out from the storage area and thought to myself “Oh, I can make you into something much more interesting and alive”. Hopefully you will agree and prefer the painting “Look At Me Now”. By the way, the previous painting was titled “Opposites Attract”, but I didn’t think that title worked for this dramatic piece.
Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
