Similarly, can you imagine an artist without spontaneity and versatility?
If an actor can play the role of a crook and a dedicated lover with the same intensity and passion, can an artist not make a painting of a lady with as much ardor as he would of a butterfly on a leaf?
After all, both are art; both come straight from the soul and both salute the spirit of mankind.
The Vibrant Artist
A true artist ought to have the drive and enthusiasm to find a subject in everything that he sees. He should have the will and the desire to appreciate and observe life, and paint it in all its hues.
Versatility and an ability to function in different mediums, with a varied choice of subjects, colors and styles is a great asset for any artist. If you possess this dynamism, you sure have an edge over the rest. Pablo Picasso, Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke are pioneers of versatility in art. A paper on art by David W. Galenson calls them conceptual innovators.
If you are great at making originals as well as nuanced copies of masterpieces of different artists, you are going to be more in demand and richer sooner than you think.
Art collectors come with different pocket sizes. But a love of aesthetics and a common desire of stocking up on art binds them. There are some great painting websites online that cater to this demand by having almost identical copies of original masterpieces. They also host many other paintings.
When you explore and push your abilities by painting a variety of subjects, you can actively contribute to these websites and earn big bucks. You can also have your own blog where you put up your paintings and talk about the work and skill sets that go behind each creation. The idea is that with your ability and versatility, you create a platform for yourself that is both aesthetically stimulating and economically viable.
