Art that tries to offend no one is the visual equivalent of elevator music. Art that emanates from your soul will be loved…and hated.
The best painters connect passionately with whatever is in front of them (or inside) and their art flows from that passion.
There’s always that little bit of visual bias living inside you and making mischief, usually at the most inconvenient time. It’s important to know it’s there, embrace it, and then learn the tricks to override it.
