I read an article at Muddy Colors this morning that I instantly wanted to share. The article is written around what defines a “real” artist. This a subject that I have pondered many times and I imagine that other creative people have as well.
“Am I an artist?” Is a question I have asked myself many times and I still don’t know how I would react if I was asked this question by a stranger. I sketch…does that make me an artist? I enjoy photography…does that make me an artist? I am a fairly competent woodworker…does that make me an artist? You get the idea. Everyone has a different opinion on what skill level or activities makes someone a “Real” Artist.
Anyway, I think this article does an excellent job of addressing the question and I highly recommend reading it. Especially, if you have ever wondered the same of yourself.
