art, when ?

when is something art ?

  1. artists do not care about this.

so should anybody else ?

  1. no, surely not.

an artist is similar to an athlete, by practicing one gets more routine/repertoire on how and where to start and end and how to avoid pitfalls and how to handle the ones one got into nevertheless.

both professions have the need to stay inside safe limits to not hurt the outcome and to push these very limits to make it special.

but artists have two advantages over an athlete

  1. that going beyond more likely does not hurt anybody physically
  2. art is a quality not a quantity, not only champions can produce but everyone.
doing your best is it, renown artists have a different best, but it is theirs not yours. Trying to outdo anyone but yourself is only limitting.
