The Art of The Cover

The other day, I happened to see a Gainsborough.

Then I saw a John Singer Sargent.

Then I saw portrait which Sargent had intentionally painted the style of Gainsborough (per the buyer’s request).

Ah, fatal flaw.

One should never ask an artist to imitate another artist.

That is folly.

And for a artist to agree to imitate another artist?

That is the quickest way to ruin.

Being one’s self is the only way to achieve greatness.

The sooner you learn you were born to add a unique voice and vision to the world, the greater you’ll be.
