I have always admired artists who bring a loose style to their art. There is so much expression and feeling that is woven in that piece of art and I have always wished I could just see and create my art in that way.
Changing my style and embracing it has been challenging. The key is in finding a way to ease your brain into accepting a new style, one a bit messier than the perfectionist fiddler inside. That perfectionist can be quite judgemental and want to hold on.
That being said I have to admit I am that fiddler. My brain up to this point has been interested in fiddling with the details, perfecting them and somehow manicuring my art to death and fighting me as I move to let go.
Many other artists I know also have this same challenge so I know I am not alone in this pursuit.
So what is an artist to do when you want to do something other than where your brains seems to demand you go?…
