Parents, Children and ArtFor those of you who have children, do you ever wonder how your art will affect them when they're older? Or if they are older, how does it affect them?
My children are 11 and 13 and are now aware that a simple google search could bring up anything I have online, anything I've published, anything I plan to ever produce in the future. My daughter is terrified because she saw my piece "Get Up" and it has cleavage. My son would deem me the devil itself if I ever decided to do self-portraits again. If it was their choice, I'd never take another self-portrait and certainly not a nude one.
But wait a second, isn't this MY art? MY voice? But then again, I don't want them bullied or made fun of for having the "mom on the net." As mothers, or fathers, where do we draw the line? Has anyone had this conversation with themselves before? Or their kids?
I suppose I bring this up because only shooting flowers/nature is just boring me to tears
I do . . . stuff. I like to create things. I used to draw, but now I mainly do photography. I photograph any subject that catches my fancy. Lately, I've been focused on fine art nudes. But that's not all I do with a camera. I'd actually like to make a living with a camera, but we'll see how it goes. I might be a sculptor, tomorrow, for all I know.|
