Continued Creative Police part 2.

Read part 1 the next blog down first, dopey me forgot that part 2 would come first.

That lady who nominated herself as the police for all art and painting has no idea who I am, what I've done, what I've achieved. Where does this attitude come from?
I learnt very early on in my arty and creative career that what works for me is always right for me. There are no rights or wrongs in art. If it works for you than do it, don't listen to those down sayers who always say, you cant do that", Why cant you.
My rules, Be confident in what you do.
Be proud of what you do.
Own what you do.
Accept that you created it.
Don't let the "police" hinder your creativity.
Keep away from those negative people.
Everyday be grateful that you can think for yourself and be creative.
Creativity is to be nurtured , not denied. As long as you are happy with what you have achieved, you are happy with what you have made what does it matter if you broke "rules" on the way. As long as the end is what you had visualised, isn't that the most important, "rule" of all.


  1. Some good stuff here. One way to overcome the dilemma of having your posts in the wrong order is to put a link in your first line of the post linking to the other one.
