My Philosophy is to paint what you love: If your heart’s not in it, your painting will never “sing”; at best, it will “hum” a forgettable and often flat tune.Don’t follow trends, just to make a buck: Let’s say, the current trend is sunflowers and every 3rd painting sold is a depiction of sunflowers; but if you are gravely allergic to and thus loath sunflowers, and the mere mention of those mutant daisies sends you diving for the tissue box, then don’t paint sunflowers. Each brushstroke will be agony, you’ll never be satisfied with the results, and any money earned will be spent on tissues and allergy meds. This is an extreme example, but you get the idea.
