So many styles of painting....

As an Artist, many people ask, why do I create so many paintings in various styles and of various subject matter? The answer, I've studied art professionally at Ringling School of Art and Design and I noticed during art history classes that most masters created work they were known for (one style, one genre) and they created other styles and genres of work so that they would be able to explore their creativity. They didn't want to to become stagnant and create the same work over and over again. They evolved! Look at Picasso and Boccioni - great examples of artists that jumped styles - oh wait, one more.... Leonardo Da Vinci!
