I found this quote, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
― Edgar Degas”
And found I can relate.
I spent many years learning how to make art with a camera. Found inspiration in the works of others, but, the work was of the others, and not my own.
I practiced to make what I saw in others art, somehow my own.
Not until a recent show at the Parkwood Gallery in Toledo, Ohio, did I make art that connected with others and then became my own.
Others saw and commented that they felt connected and reminded them of a memory or place.
