Idealism versus RealismIdealism vs. Realism
Many people upon viewing the pieces of great illusionary value from wish to attain a naturalistic artistic style. Before initiating this endeavor however, one must consider a few things such as their favorite elements of such an art style, who their audience is, and what the subject matter is.

you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.

Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
