By changing the way they paint, apply colour, texture, perspective, or the way they see shapes and ideas, the artist establishes a certain set of "rules". If other artists see the rules as valid for themselves they might also apply these characteristics. The works of art then take on that specific "style". An artist may give the style a name such as Expressionism, or a name may be applied later, as in the case of abstract art.
Apart from making pretty things prettier(?), and ugly things at least more acceptable, it’s all about problem solving. To follow directions but still manage to keep your work fresh, unique and personal. It’s also very important to be able to stay TRUE to your style, while at the same time constantly challenging yourself and never get fat and lazy and afraid of trying new things.
