This painting is a reflection of my inner emotions today. I am happy, relaxed and feeling joy. When I paint with lots of color, it feels like I am reaching way into the right side of my brain. After I am finished with a painting like this, I have a little bit of a headache, from working all those brain cells that are responsible for creativity and intuition. I think the key as an Artist is, to figure out how to operate on the right side of the brain all of the time! Can you imagine what a creative world this would be?
To watermark or not seems to be the big question. I notice many successful artists do not watermark their artwork, and have no worries or concerns about people downloading their images. I guess if someone really needed to download an image because they could not afford to buy an original painting or print, it would not break the bank…but what if thousands of people did it? What if hundreds of thousands of people did it?
Nowadays with wireless high quality image printers, anyone can make a print. Anyone can copy the image, upload it, and put it on anything they want to. And, even if you do watermark the image, if someone wants it badly enough, they are going to Photoshop the watermark out!
When you hit a creative block…Just keep going. Eventually you will rise above it, get out of it, break your creative ceiling!! In theory it’s supposed to work anyway! In this case I’m not exactly thrilled with this piece, but it has served a purpose in helping me break through and keep going in the creative process….Like Nike says “Just Do It”!!
