Art isn't about skill so much as it's about sharing one's experience and understanding of being, with others, through some medium. Skill in manipulating the chosen medium certainly helps, but that usually comes with doing it. It's the drive to do it that comes first. The skills come through persistent practice.

Art is an amazing and vastly under-appreciated human endeavor. It's sad that so many people live their lives oblivious to it's real depth and revelatory power.

There are many art-haters, it's true. But as bad as they are, it's the people who think art is entertainment, and is therefor "whatever I like" that do the most harm relative to art as an important social endeavor.

Not every poem is a great poem. But that doesn't negate the value or significance of poetry. All we can do is give the artist the benefit of the doubt, because otherwise we're both just wasting our time, and then see what comes of it.

We humans love to pass judgment, but in all honesty, passing judgment on works of art is just an exercise in personal bias. And what's the point of that? I think it's much more fun to find myself feeling "insulted" by a work of art than placated by one. Though either is ultimately OK.

I vary rarely actually dislike a work of art, though I am sometimes bored or confused by them. But then I don't go out of my way to engage with other artist's work that often. And when I do, I make sure I'm in the right frame of mind for it. To be honest, I love and admire other artists more than I love or admire their work.

Except my own. I love and admire my own artwork, enormously. ;)

Yes. I post in the "Arts" section, but unfortunately it's not very active. So there is little response.

cool, what is your interest in the arts, if I may ask??

I am and have been an artist for many years.

I admire anyone with skills in art, I never had any talent for it what so ever...

Art isn't about skill so much as it's about sharing one's experience and understanding of being, with others, through some medium. Skill in manipulating the chosen medium certainly helps, but that usually comes with doing it. It's the drive to do it that comes first. The skills come through persistent practice.

Art is an amazing and vastly under-appreciated human endeavor. It's sad that so many people live their lives oblivious to it's real depth and revelatory power.

yeah, I think many see as a waste of time or an easy way out of real work.

There are many art-haters, it's true. But as bad as they are, it's the people who think art is entertainment, and is therefor "whatever I like" that do the most harm relative to art as an important social endeavor.

I have seen some wacky stuff, one guy who painted in his excrement for example"

Not every poem is a great poem. But that doesn't negate the value or significance of poetry. All we can do is give the artist the benefit of the doubt, because otherwise we're both just wasting our time, and then see what comes of it.

We humans love to pass judgment, but in all honesty, passing judgment on works of art is just an exercise in personal bias. And what's the point of that? I think it's much more fun to find myself feeling "insulted" by a work of art than placated by one. Though either is ultimately OK.

I vary rarely actually dislike a work of art, though I am sometimes bored or confused by them. But then I don't go out of my way to engage with other artist's work that often. And when I do, I make sure I'm in the right frame of mind for it. To be honest, I love and admire other artists more than I love or admire their work.

Except my own. I love and admire my own artwork, enormously. ;)

So you should, I would be immensely proud of any art work I produced but I never got past painting by numbers..lol
