"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, AWAKES." - Carl Jung
A lot has been said on the subject of "finding yourself". It is a topic of particular interest to creative types. I recently heard an artist whose work I adore, speak to the idea of not having found her style, therefore, leaving her feeling invalidated as an artist somehow. I am guilty of having had those same feelings in the past.
But no more! "Your style" doesn't have to mean limiting yourself to works which are instantly attributable to you as the creator. Your style is just that, YOURS! Whether you like to be in a comfort zone artistically or crave experimentation through a vast array of styles and mediums, make art that speaks to your soul and it will be uniquely yours.
This piece was inspired by the Relics & Artifacts Tribe #RAShadesofRed challenge running now through February 15. There's still time to join the Tribe and all of the fun! Can't wait to see all the beautiful creations!
