ARTificial

This weeks topic on Illustration Friday is
'ARTIFICIAL'
with the quote provided
""Making social comment is an artificial place for an artist to start from. If an artist is touched by some social condition, what the artist creates will reflect that, but you can't force it." ~ Susan Sontag


 
It reminds me also of the a quote by 'SCHILLER';
"If by your actions and by your art you cannot please everyone -
please a few, to please everyone is bad."
I guess the moral is to be true to yourself and not become 'artificial' to please others.
hmmm
would love to hear your comments on this...

Beautiful painting. I've never seen watercolor and acrylic together. It works! It's hard to be true to yourself, but definitely worth trying.

I had lunch with my 8-yr-old niece this weekend, and we discussed which packets of sweeteners were safe and which weren't. It was a charming discussion, and you've made a charming picture to go with my experience. Thanks!
