Is there something more counter intuitive than sitting down to create great art? Is it possible to create something great if we, the creators, think it’s great? Did Da Vinci think the Monalisa was as great as we think it is? I doubt it. I’m not sure it’s possible for creators to pass all the imperfections, all the mistakes and errors only us can see. So how does one create something that later on is considered great? Is it all about the quality of the work, or the viewers can’t help but to add to the piece all the story and history behind it, making something ok, great. It confusing and stressful. All creative people thrive when their work gets “recognized” as great. And I think that’s all there really is, at a certain point, a piece of art doesn’t become great, it just become recognized as one. And for that, us, the creators, have little to no control. All there is left is to do the best we can to our own opinion, and set it free. Hopefully, it will catch someone’s eyes, ears or hands. And the rest, is history.
