Looking at Art

Looking at artwork that is not up to your standards or not as good as you can produce yourself is generally a waste of time. It can force you to find merit in work that you may otherwise just overlook but other than that, time is better spent looking at nature. When I visit to a gallery I want to leave saying to myself, "Wow, I wish I could paint like that." If that doesn't happen nothing much has been accomplished.

I couldn't agree more with this thought. I mainly visit galleries to see works that I'm not yet capable of doing. This way I get ideas for improvement.
