“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” Gore Vidal

 In art we look at form and method to describe an artists style.  An artistic style is a combination of equipment, genre, subject, place, motivation and skills.  It's the expression of theme and concepts.

Fine art is the expression of an artist's perceptions and emotions.

 All of my art is an expression of an emotion.
