How many of you artists out there stick to just one style. Say for instance, all birds, all abstract, portraits only, landscapes only?
I struggle with wanting to visit around with different techniques and styles. But if I do this, is it at the expense of professional branding? The majority of my art revolves around mixed media on canvas. Recently I've become aware of an encaustic workshop and would love to learn this technique.
From a business standpoint I understand how important it is to focus on the product, the branding, the marketing. Staying clear in the eye of your audience. What does that do to creativity though? Being someone who is always curious about the creative process yet needing to stay marketable, where is the balance achieved? Is there ever a balance?
Ideas? Suggestions? Thoughts on the matter? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?????
