What defines an artist?
Confronted by a babbling fool that I thought was just a tool, placing all his wrenches inside a box nice and neat.
Downing others art is what makes himself feel complete.
Looking at my lighthouse painting saying ", I don't get it, and you have no formal training I can tell."
Verbal attack do I lash back, instead I bush my shoulders off and think about my art heroes of the past and present.
Van Gogh how was he treated in life?
Jimmie Hendrix how was he treated in life?
Ozzy his verbal masterpieces on his own or with Black Sabbath they rocked the world even to this day.
Not everyone has to like or get what we send out but the ones who understand makes all the difference to me.
I will never conform to a box that others set their own rules and limitations by.
Are you truly yourself as an artist? The art in the words, music, sight, taste and smell as well.
If myself changed myself to conform to box I will be spiritually a puppet on a string.
I choose freewill.
I brush off the verbal negative garbage off my shoulders and keep my soul clean and free.
