If you copy a painting, what you notice is other people’s creativity. Their inner feelings are theirs. No matter how beautiful it is, it still doesn’t show who you are.
But when you accept their creativity as inspiration for you to develop ideas for your work, then, when the picture is finished, it is yours, it shows who you are, what you convey through the picture.
Moreover, when you accept the creativity of your predecessors as an inspiration, you will make that flow even more abundant.
The quintessence is stored in your painting and spreaded to many people. The flow will still flow, and thanks to you, the flow will flow stronger, refined and embellished even more gracefully.
When others look at them, they will see the difference.Life is beautiful when one same idea can be recreated and expressed over and over again through the uniqueness of each person.
When we rely on an idea, or the creativity of others to explore our own identity, it will make that idea sublimate. It also makes that wonderful flow continue smoothly. It also makes you find yourself nourished from everything around. You expand yourself and deepen your identity. If you just copy it, the uniqueness of each person will gradually be overshadowed. So,
Don’t hesitate to seek inspiration, but make that inspiration fresher and richer through your contribution and development.
