When does art becomes art?

Ran into these sketches. Made a long, long time ago. Very small in size.

But can you imagine, for instance the first three pieces. That I paint these sketches on al large scale.

Let’s say: 300 by 200 cm? Wouldn’t that be great?

I guess I am an oldfashioned artist. Well, at least my themes are: landscapes, nature, women.

On the other hand, it depends on what you do with these themes.

As Oscar Wilde put it: “No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist”.
