internal vision definition

Internal vision is the vision one has within himself/herself that guides one along in the creation of artwork.  Remaining true to one's internal vision allows one to follow the leadings of the heart, and often results in satisfaction with one's work.  Violating one's internal vision, on the other hand, often leads one to get lost along the artistic path, because there is no longer a guide to propel one's artwork along.  Jackson Pollack is an example of an artist who followed his internal vision, as well as Picasso, Salvador Dali and Van Gogh.  Each was unique in his artwork, which would not have been the case if they had followed the path dictated for artists in their particular life circumstances.
