on "Raw" canvas

What do you think, fellow artists?

I work on "raw" ungessoed canvas or linen. Favorite subject: something that doesn't exist in reality.
I am self taught 50 y.o. artist, have been painting for the last 10 years.

Think what you could do if you were taught.

I am taught. You don't believe in self-education?

Claiming self taught is a cliche. It's used as an excuse and a boast. We are all self taught. Nice work BTW.

It may be so, I agree, but it's not about bragging, just a true statement. My viewers often ask where I got my education. Hence...

maybe to you lol. if you have the opportunity to go to art school you are not self taught. as simple as that and carved in stone. its a new thing with all the possibilities from
the internet. and "self taught" gets harder to do since companies fill holes left and right with money making concepts.

it doesnt mean you are a better artists than someone from art school but it means you had more hurdles to take than the usual "i love art kid"
that was sent to artschool paid by parents.

so just i assume you went to artschool. think about what you could have achieved without getting someone elses way taught ?
its also kind of rude to people who maybe would loved going to artschool but didnt have the opportunity.

Something that I said was taken as rude? My points were the term "self taught" has become cliche. It's used to explain their work. Why it's not better or why it's better than you would expect. In other words it really has no precise meaning. It is a useless cliche.

Yes I went to school in America in the 60's and 70's. I had art in grade school and high school.

not really. "lying" or "pretending" has become cliche by your definition. the term "self taught" means what it always meant. people abusing the term doesnt change its meaning. its just your association.

and in a nihilistic (sp?) kind of way might make sense but you can only assume its irrelevant you dont know. i didnt take it as rude either i just said it is kind of an offensive reply to someone who
didnt have the opportunity to get proper traditional education is all.

Interesting discussion, but a tad off the topic. What do you think of this painting, dear artists?

On another note, I didn't want to go to an art school, it was my choice to study on my own. Like one wise artist once said: "art schools can't teach you to be talented." It's no secret, that needed technical skills are achievable without a teacher, it only takes time, persistence and dedication. Nowadays there are plenty lessons online.
