What Inspires Artists?
Susie E Caron (c) 11/09/19
Artists like me paint, sculpt and create for several reasons. However, our ‘art’ is not something we do just for fun, for a little spending money, or for most of us, it’s certainly not to earn a living wage. Creating art is about who we are, and seriously, once we’re hooked, we find it hard to stop. However, there are a few more reasons.
To the greater world, exhibiting may seem a big inspiration. While it is a necessary part of our art business, it is usually outside our comfort zone. We’d rather spend time in our art studios than exhibit. So why do we put ourselves through the effort? Why do we exhibit and submit to being judged, or why risk the possibility of no sales’ when the exhibit ends?
Exhibits can be exciting, validating, rewarding and more. It’s exciting to see our paintings displayed out in a wider world, in a gallery among other artists’ works. It’s validating to receive awards for works entered. It’s rewarding when someone likes and purchases a painting for themselves or a loved one. However, these pale in comparison when I think about what keeps artists like me inspired.
I feel the most grateful and inspired whenever I see people gathering, on purpose, just to view what we artists created. Watching people looking at, choosing to spend a little more time with various works, and being moved by the art inspires me to keep creating, to keep improving and keep seeking that illusive ‘perfect’ painting. As a result, I feel all the more inspired to paint for me, and also to paint for you.
I’d love you to come inspire me and other artists this Sunday at our artists’ reception when we celebrate the opening of -
GEMS & GIANTS exhibit, in The Bryan Gallery, Jeffersonville, VT.
This exhibit of very large paintings (GIANTS) along with much smaller paintings (GEMS) runs from Nov. 10- Dec. 22, 2019.
My 3 GEMS, shown in this article are included for sale in this exhibit.
Come meet us and become a big part of what inspires artists, like me.
