Look to your art to improve your art

Even if a painting is not working, I can always find some part I like. These are clues as to where to go next.

Let me show you what I mean…

Even in the mess we make, there’s hope! Beautiful clues emerge, like certain colors together or how a line relates to a shape, to inform your way forward and keep you progressing. Rather than looking at others’ work, staying immersed and attentive in your art-making will provide the solutions. It’s a self-generating process that comes from within.

Do you find your way by looking at your art? Let me know in the comments.

In this week’s Art2Life Podcast, I talk with extraordinary New York-based painter, Rob Szot, all about how the actual process of making his art has helped him discover his art. For years, Rob has been finding his way by paying attention and simply being present. It is a refreshingly simple approach to art-making.

I am also super excited to announce the Free Art2Life Workshop is back and we’re starting on February 14th – Valentine’s Day! This year it is going to be even better than last year. I hope you’ll join me.
