A Comfortable Formula

Don't fall into the trap of using a formula. I know of several painters that find one subject and have found some success in it both financially and with public approval but their paintings have become stale and predictible. Their paintings lack insight, life, and the esscence of what they were originally in search of. They have become comfortable and in so doing take on the role of a commercial artists whose purpose is to please others and not themselves. They stop growing as artists when that happens. Know your limits but never be satisfied with them.
