That’s the spirit!
My fellow artists, we have to do our own thing and don’t let anyone else’s opinion stop you!
As for myself, I was thinking of trying to continue my practice painting like Matisse out in plein air, which means people might see me tape my brushes onto yard sticks and stand way back to paint. Would they think I was insane? Will they think I’m trying to get attention? Will they call the cops? I don’t know. They probably already think I’m odd because I go out alone to paint.
Anyway, I never did care too much what people think, I might do it when the weather clears up.
