Rules

After reading Matt Chinian's blog post Parameters a couple of weeks ago, I began to reflect about my own rules. I knew I must have something like that in mind but had never thought about articulating them...

First rule, here as well: there are no rules and I am totally free.

Second rule: I will enjoy what I do and only do what I am good at. Of course, I am free to try new techniques, subjects, dimensions because there is no creative process without experimenting.

Third rule: I will try to keep a balance between painting and photography. (This rule may disappear one day if I feel that I have no inspiration any longer to paint or do not find enough interesting subjects to capture with my camera).

Fourth rule (same as in life): I will always be ethical. Which means: as a painter, I will never use (copy) a painting or photograph by another artist without asking for permission and/or mentioning the author clearly on the front side of the canvas (if this had to happen one day that I feel like using material of someone else). And, as a photographer, I will not take pictures of human beings without their knowledge and authorization (even if those persons have no clue about intellectual property, right to their image and all that).
