24" x 30", Oil on Canvas, 2019, Catherine Farquhar
Frida Kahlo wisely stated that we should never to get attached to our plans. Anyone who has ever made a piece of art or understands the quirks of life can relate.
"Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.”
For an artist, this means that every new experience gives you another perspective or outlook. The information we receive through our senses is internalized and comes out transformed onto canvas or in print. Sometimes our creations are surprising and they may seem random to an outsider. As artists, our visual styles evolve and can change like the wind. Embrace this and run with it. Express how you feel and how you interpret your surroundings. Have the confidence to acknowledge your voice and create your art with love. Love that allows you to speak your truth through art and love yourself enough to make time to create and express your unique story.
