Thread: Why should I paint?
June 12th, 2013 #40
If you reflect on yourself and on the world you always have something useful to say.There will be a lot of things that matter to you. And because you are human others will agree or disagree but it won't be boring.
Good job Chris Bennett on trying to keep them small.

Then it almost certainly is.
I don't believe you have much good intentions after this message. If you want prove me wrong.

Why an art duel? haha..I won't give up my kindness for the sake of art! You know he is a good artist and therefore he is also a roll-model for some. If he says things like that they could be taken really seriously by some and become like a demon in the mind. I don't mean to be disrespectful, just saying what I see.

When you love something, when you care about something, when something you have dreamed up gives you a sense of epiphany that you long to share with others you never, ever, think that it is stupid or silly or boring.
If what you have found within yourself does not move you, does not compel you, does not excite your interest, how on earth does it stand a chance to move, compel or excite the interest of anyone else?
If you tell someone you love them and don't believe it, what does that make you?
Would you like me to spell it out, or can you figure it out for yourself?

Andrew, Chris is right. I know you play water polo, just think what excites you about the game. Don't you want to capture the energy?

That is what you ought to think about it but what is often not the case. I don't understand why you are feeling agitated about this. These discussions are for people to understand or try to. You sound like a politician that only adjusts his bad choice when they are pointed out.I speak my cloud to become wiser and where possible help others. There is no shame in admitting I might be right! I take back my comment on your good intentions but replace them for you might be a bit close minded..that's ok!

Saying I'm agitated, likening me to a devious politician, saying I'm ashamed of admitting you are right and calling me closed minded does not counter my argument.
Your focus is on me in relation to your own personal issues.
If you were as open minded as you delude yourself into believing, you would look at the arguments rather than your own navel.

Thanks Chris.I woke up knowing you're right.That's nice!The problem is studying in isolation and not sharing my thoughts!
Like I said before it was not about you personally!I'm just reflecting. The possibility that the response where this all came from
(then it almost certainly is) is interpreted by someone else as negative is as likely as you feeling attacked or anything by what I said.
Anyway I am glad you responded and gave it some thought. Let's just continue on why we should paint

Vineris: That's a good point, perfectly put!
Gibi: Thanks for your recent post. Especially as I can come over a little sharp when trying to nail down something I believe more important than usual - for which you have my apology.

Vinerus: I'll add to that, If you think your thoughts are stupid or boring at least share them. You need a second opinion.
Chris: you know you are welcome. I am not stubborn. This is me sharing my stupid, boring thoughts and learning from them
Now I just say we should paint to find and push forward our boundaries.
