Emotion is the artist's best friend. Some of my best works were created in times of extreme emotion. Emotion and passion in paintings are more valuable than any art class that you could ever take. Anger is your friend. Sadness is your friend. A sense of fear is your friend. And yes....love, and happiness are your friends too! Any of these emotions, especially an extreme form of them is your best friend when it comes to making art! So the next time you get angry at something or someone, grab your pencil or paint brush and go to town! Because these emotions will bring out something great in your work that might not be capable in an "ordinary state of mind"!
