Today’s Robert and Sara Genn newsletter was particularly great. They are all great, but some resonate more than others.
Today it was all about style, or as we sometimes call it, voice. It talked about finding your uniqueness that makes your work above simply ‘nice’ work. I know a lot of painters and quilt artists who’s work is nice enough, competent, but lacks something so that the viewer looses interest. Its that difference that sets your work apart from standard fare. And is probably that illusive thing that juries and judges look for. You can read the newsletter here .
I hope I’m on that road to finding my own uniqueness as I set out on a few new adventures in 2015. I guess that’s my word for 2015. UNIQUENESS. I hope I can live up to it.
