brave

Hi friends!  How is your week going?  This has been a really busy week for me, full of art projects and checklists.  I know it is only Wednesday, but I am really ready for the weekend!  Anyone else feel like that?

One of the reasons why this week has been so crazy is because we had our first critique in my level two drawing class.  Lets just say, it was not my favorite experience.  Making art is such a vulnerable experience, and I don’t think I was quite ready for my entire class to have an opinion about it.

To be honest, I came home that day feeling pretty defeated.  Later that night I had a good talk with my husband, and he reminded me that I am not making art for anyone else other than myself.  He encouraged me to learn from the experience, and become a stronger person because of it.  And, I think he is right!

I need to remember to be brave!  This is MY year of art, and I want to do everything I can to become a better, stronger person as a result.  So, here’s to being brave!

Happy Wednesday friends!

    I love this photo (maybe because it’s a black-n-white and I’m fond of those). Nice inscription as well.

      Thanks for the link! That was so encouraging! I am also thinking about re-reading the war of art. 🙂

    […] I didn’t think I could do it.  My take away from this is that we need to be brave (sound familiar!), and keep trying new things!  We will always surprise […]
