Open Book


When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressive creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and opens ways for better understanding. Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it and shows there are still more pages possible.” 
― Robert Henri 


Never let anyone tell you how to express yourself, find yourself, your style or how to create and explore your art. Don't let them close your book. Whatever the medium, paint, photography, video, the digital brush or the sable brush, it's YOUR art. There's no wrong way to do it or master it. There isn't ONE expert on the planet to say otherwise or one opinion that matters in the least.

Remember that. Just be.

Open your book, be wonderful, be an expressive creature. 
Damn the torpedos!
