In my opinion, absolutely not! I see things everyday that inspire me to think outside the box. I believe that we learn new things all the time and should try new things.
Upon saying this, I have just come back from a beautiful trip to Hawaii. It was so perfect and the Art Galleries there are truly amazing! I saw some very cool things there and some incredibly talented Artists. I mean their work sells for thousands of dollars! I saw a technique that I want to try. I will incorporate my style whatever that is ) into what I saw. I do not want to copy what I saw there but want to develop my own thing.
These next few weeks are going to be incredibly busy as I try to create something new!
Also there is an April At show here in Airdrie that I am a part of so I must remain diligent and focused on the projects at hand. :)
