I have to see it often, learn it over and over again. The most important thing about making art is to make art. In a post of "exercises" that Mike Johnston has taken, I see again how you can make interesting photos without going somewhere exotic, or worrying about spectacular subject matter.

I selected "Blood Spatter," because I think it really exemplifies what I'm talking about. I mean, come on. A picture of a toilet paper roll? Yes! And I think it evokes a feeling or emotion - that is the goal of art.
