RE: (IAAC) RE: Art/Not art (was: NGC 7000 etc.)


Well you will probably laugh when I tell you that my job is computer...
artist! :-) Really! Well, officially, we call that a "graphic designer", but
it's some form of art, isn't it?!

It's true that most people think they are Big Zeroes at art... Actually,
most think they're Big Zeroes at everything... But it's hard sometimes to
have self-confidence when the Society projects the image of perfectness...

I admit that art is all around... What's more beautiful than a flower, an
animal, the one you love, a galaxy, etc.?!

When I read your original post the first thing that came to my mind was that
you have a pretty narrow view of art as well as a certain amount of
insecurity when it comes to your own ability to create.

Hey, guess what?  Join the crowd, because most of the people who walk the
face of the Earth (had to mention Earth to stay on topic LOL) feel the same
way when it comes to art and making it. The good news is that it is easy to
change your views. To start, listen to those around you who liked the
sketches that you did and have confidence that you can do better with a
little time and work.

Art is all around you, and it isn't all in pretty paintings.
