What Kind Of Artist Am I


Spring is here once again as I sit here still unable to wrap my mind around how quickly time goes by. Before long Fall will be here and then the New Year where once again I’ll be saying the same thing.
The last four months have felt kind of slow art wise. I can’t say I’ve been cranking out as much as I’d like to. The greatest obstacle to being a prolific artist is oneself. I’m not trying to suggest that one should work like a machine but neither do I want to suggest that one should ignore areas that could use improvement. I have my shortcomings and it’s almost hilarious all the hoops I jump through just to try and avoid facing them. Yet despite it all I still manage to get some work achieved. Here’s one of my quarterly art round ups that I like to do every 3-4 months to showcase what I’ve accomplished so far. I’m tackling more art featuring animals which honestly has been a bit nerve racking. Stippling fur so that it actually looks like fur is a new challenge but so far I’ve been able to manage and I intent to do more. As of now my list of subject matter includes landscapes, botanicals, portraits and animals, which leaves me wondering, what kind of artist does that make me? Some artists tend to stick to a particular subject, like some just do portraits, some just do landscapes and some just do wildlife. I seem to do a little bit of it all. Maybe it’s too early for me to settle on a particular subject. What I do know is that I tend to gravitate towards doing work that involves Nature and humans the most. Where that puts me as an artist, I have yet to figure out.

Anyhoo, here’s what I’ve managed to ink so far since December. Some of these pieces are still available in store if any of you lovely followers are interested in giving one a new home. 😊

  1. When I started having exhibitions way back in the day, I had so many different styles that people often thought my solo shows were by different people. I used to worry about it, but I no longer do. Celebrate that you have a wide repertoire and try to see the people who don’t as being ‘limited’ rather than specialists in their subjects.

    1. …but I really would like to have a little more focus. I kinda feel like I’m all over the place. I’ve been thinking about focusing on portraiture that’s loosely based on the various portrait styles in photography using people and animals as subject matter. The different styles could offer variety while using the human and animals forms as the subjects could give it focus. It’s just a thought for now. 😊
