You can make art with everything but if you be honest and correct then you will know that the first 500 works cannot be good because you are not yet there, where your personality is. You make up a piece from what you have seen, from what you have learnt. You have to go further on and on till you are fed up with what you have seen and what you have learnt. You have to go on till you find that box and take out from there that is something complete unique and about which you can say, this is me. It’s a learning process and to reach there, it takes years and mountain of patience.
Second thing to be aware of is - you have to have that uniqueness in you. There is a chance that you may also find nothing and then it is quite a waste of time and the sad thing is, you don’t know it from before whether you have it or not.
Personally, I think that most artists find something they are happy with and they stay doing it because it gives them some satisfaction but satisfaction is not what it goes about. You have to acknowledge that beyond personal satisfaction, the real quest starts. That is why I said you will have to go through, most probably, a lot of depressions, lot of times not being happy with yourself, if you choose to create art.
