I love quotes of Oscar Wilde! And I indeed have used them often..They are so accurate .
A true creative artist not to be mistaken with one who’s crafty! Crafty people go by the book . Crafty people don’t listen to their gut . Crafty people may come with strong hands to sculpt , paint or play music but can they really create on their own . Nothing wrong with being crafty since it is also a gift ! But it differs from the one who creates and don’t need much but the world that directly inspires them simply to creative ! Crafty people care about other people’s opinion.
The view of the public is almost meaningless to an artist since their mind is too busy on the next subject , whatever that may be ..Most great artists are not here to please all, as long as they are pleased , that’s plenty !
