I’ve been painting for so long, I’m trying to get out of calling it “making”. The more I think of it it doesn’t feel like it captures what I do. I met someone a few days ago who called themselves a “maker” and was kind of an ass about it. Just how things go.
The art world has way too much ego in it. I never really get why we are expected to turn our noses up? we work hard to enjoy our talents but I look at it like, it’s imagaination, plus practice and then skill. You could paint like me if you practiced but it would be you coping me and not you making something from with in. It would never feel original until you looked and pulled from inside.
