ITS OK TO MAKE UGLY STUFF - 'April Lacheur Canadian Artist'
💫 IT OK TO MAKE UGLY STUFF 💫 I know I know.. seems wrong for an artist to say right? (and btw I do NOT think this image is ugly..its on of my faves)... BUT I have made many an ugly thing.. and .. though it can be frustrating at the time and feel like its valuable time wasted I have learned over the years its often from these ugly pieces the beautiful ones grow.. .. its all part of the process... same is true with life.. am I right?
an abstract painting with the words art should be shared
April Lacheur Artist Words of Wisdom
💫 ART SHOULD BE SHARED 💫 Getting back to sharing some words of wisdom I have learned in my 12+ years as a working artist. One of the greatest joys of being an artist is being able to share it and see other people's reactions to it. Its always so interesting to me to hear what people see in my work and how it makes them feel. Art really is subjective and that is the TRUE magic of it!

🌟ARTIST WORDS OF WISDOM🌟 What is the value of art? One of the many benefits of art is its ability to make a house a HOME. When we surround ourselves with things we connect with, that tell a story or remind us of something it an help us feel more at peace in our own homes which is wonderful for our mental health. Ideally our homes should help us feel safe, relaxed and be an expression of ourselves. Art can sure help with that!
a painting with the words being an artist is a real job
April Lacheur | British Columbia Artist | Acrylic Nature Artist
🌟Artist Words of Wisdom🌟 I grew up with the understanding that being an artist was not a 'real job'. I now know this is not true. Art brings joy and escape and helps us share stories and emotion. There is great value to our mental health in surrounding ourselves with things that we connect with and that bring us joy and I no longer undervalue this. I can now proudly say 'Art is my real job'!
