Ok, so how do we make our taste? Follow our instincts? Well, one very good way is through language. Say you spend Saturday afternoon at a museum or your lunch hour browsing art blogs, and somewhere in there you see something you really like. Something that makes your eyes and brain light up like a Christmas tree. Use your words. You could actually write it down, or tell a friend, or you could just articulate it to yourself inside your head.
