My dear,

Art is an opinion. You have it, and it’s never wrong.

Forget about all the people that say “You’re not doing it right, You’re not painting that right, You’re not dancing right, You’re not… right.

Forget all of them.

It’s Art for Pete’s sake!

It’s yours. It’s less an expression of yourself and more of an outward extension of yourself. It’s less your work, and more you. And how can you do you wrong? You just can’t.

Continue doing your art. Forget all the naysayers. In the end you’ll have more art on your hands, and they’ll have nothing.

Falsely yours,
Arsene Hodali
