What does it mean to "only compete against ourselves"? This is Art Axiom #13 in a video series that pulls together the sayings that I find myself repeating to art students. Competition can spur individuals on to be their best, or it can discourage a person completely, causing them to give up. In the context of creating art I put forth the argument that the best case scenario is to compete with the finest version of ourselves. Art is individual, and no one in the world can create art just like you...it's like a fingerprint! I'd love to hear your comments :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBSo2-ON4zg
"HIS MASTERPIECE. Every artist strives to create what can be called their "masterpiece" - their best work by which others will know them. In Christ Jesus, you are God's masterpiece. Not a mistake, not an accident. God takes you as you are - broken, disabled, or just a plain mess - and refines and chisels away until the person He created you to be - His masterpiece - is revealed. But unlike a gilded statue or painting hung only for admiration, God fashions us to be useful in His Kingdom and to accomplish the work He planned for us from the beginning of time." - Commentary from The Beyond Suffering Bible, Tyndale Publishers
