I was thinking about the meaning of integrity yesterday and wondered if it means something different in your art than in your everyday life?
Integrity means the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles that you refuse to change.
Integrity means to complete what you say you will do.
Integrity means honoring yourself. It doesn’t mean you have to “feel” like doing the job or even like the job…..it means you do the job because you gave your word.
Saying and doing are two totally different things…..integrity is doing what you promised.
Integrity is a skill….it is developed over time. It is developed with experience and observation.
Integrity gives us a foundation from which to draw on for future projects. We automatically know our strength because we have proven it to ourselves (this one is really important)
Integrity is our secret back up system.
But what does it mean in our art? Exactly what is artistic integrity?
These are but a few…..What are yours? Leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I really want to know your thoughts on this.
“Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.”
