HERE COMES THE SUN
Not too long ago I found this banana tree which had been pruned to make way for new growth. I found the patterns fascinating. Im all about patterns and new growth!
I am especially drawn to the hidden, the unexpected and the mysterious.

I used a Photoshop technique I discovered recently ( which I will share on Sunday in a tutorial) to create these images .

I have been mulling over this question ever since the SBDC art show a couple of weeks ago. The feedback I received in the art I showed in that exhibition has led me to believe people were more drawn to my earlier work than work that is more recent. Do you, as artists, create for yourself and hope to draw an audience towards you, or do you find what the audience wants and create for them? Or both? This is mostly directed towards those of you who are selling your art, but I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on this.
