What we've been learning lately, is that: Art itself, and how others perceive OUR ART.. is completely and utterly relative! No two people will feel the same or have the same perspective as the artist or as the next person who sees your work. Along these same lines, personal taste is ALSO relative. Not everyone is going to love what you do, or envision it hanging in their home or landscape. Most reactions are unexpected.
What you CAN expect, is that EVERYONE will have an opinion. Get yourself enough exposure online and in your community - at the very least you will get opinions.. Positive or negative, it's important to keep these close. Keep them in mind, away from your heart. Go ahead and save them in your bag of secrets for inspiration or tweaking when you need it. Turn it from a negative moment in time into constructive feedback that flows through your art and helps evolve the operations of selling your work.
..Just Saying :)
