Art for me is for enjoyment. However, as I "suffer" from partial colour blindness I need to work a little differently from most artists. By using mainly aquarelle and pastel pencils, which have the name of the colour on them, I am able to keep painting and enjoying art. Half my life is spent in Scotland and the other in Greece (Greek wife) so it is a bit chalk and cheese but I try to follow 50 year old advice from my school art teacher - paint only what you feel really strongly about.
As for the Hirsts and Emins that sell supposed "art" - all I can say is that there are a lot of "them" about.

Latest comment I like your owl. I like detail. Obviously you do to. I also like your view about paint what you really feel. I have people asking me "what would you charge to do..." No thanks. I don't do requests.... rick burton
   
Do you think that abstract work is often more about emotional paintings whereas figurative art has a different purpose? Comments appreciated about subject...
I really like this one!!!! the texture and depth. re the question: I think what I do is figurative but is about emotion, or is emotive. Maybe photorealism... view answer
