It is not every time you will have some work that will have people react they way you expect and more so those who do not understand Mixed Media. And this brings out the question of what art do you practice or what is your style? Do you sell your pieces of art?
To answer the above questions, Mixed Media encourages you to have your own style which probe you further to showcase your work.
Question your talent, ability and your work in general as an artist. Think about your art in a new way and don’t doubt yourself because of other people’s opinions.
Now to the quote “DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO”. Create what you love and decide how you will love it and if you are passionate about it you will continue working on it until you figure out something from it.
After it is finished and you can smile at it, you owe it to yourself to love it. Someone else’s interpretation of your art should not become yours. You did it so LOVE it including the mistakes in it because they make you grow.
