Everyone is asking me to complete a family portrait.
and to paint "normally, what every one likes"
I told a close friend my ordeal for the past few months. and finding myself unable to paint, no will of my own as how i felt.
A friend asked me one night. " if there is no realism, su. And the only person left with knowledge anything art. how would YOU paint realism?" i didnt even think it through. i said "Abstact, expressionism" "Why?" he asked. i replied because it paint something of value. something that is real, if it real to you, who am i to say it is not?.
And he said exactly. So stop labeling yourself.
