Perfection is not my goal. My goal is to show emotion and personality in my paintings. If I aimed for perfection my paintings wouldn't stand out and be different, they would just blend in and look like every other painting of a horse.
I think a painter's goal is to accomplish what the subject stands for. We all have goals for ourselves and mine is different from yours. I like giving my horses personality, emotion and an awkwardness that makes them different. I also like to try new things. I change my style often to try and be a well rounded artist.
Art is subjective. You may like one thing and hate another but the point is that no one is the same, and no one is going to like the same things.
Also, when you give a critique the objective isn't to be rude it's to be informative. I would have taken your critique MUCH better if you didn't given me a back handed complement (or what I suspect as a back handed complement) :
|They're VERY nice... but personally, I wouldn't buy or trade for them.|
|But there's a difference between having something perfect, and having something that is at least of decent quality.|
|Doesn't mean that you'll hit it, but at least you'll try your hardest for it, instead of doing half-jobs (not that you DID any half-jobs here) and then put up "no artist is perfect" as an excuse.|
Thank you for your point of view and critique, I respect it but differ from it.
