Try Something New
The easiest thing to do is what is known. I've always resisted walking into my studio and painting in my safe zone. Curiosity always gets the best of me as I constantly seek to find out what's next. I do believe it's this mentality that attributes to all the terrible art I create but it's also the reason why the winners make a strong statement.
I will admit it's challenging at times to stay on this path. But to do any thing different would bore me to tears. The biggest fear I have is becoming predictable & stale, and never creating bad art. That's par for the course.
