Last night, after coming home from pottery class I really wanted to make art. I was just going to
draw a practice sketch but then I keep going... Adding colored pencil, then paint and more colored pencil. There were so many times during this piece that I just wanted to throw her out. I kept screwing her up and going over it again and again. I put her up for the night in hopes that in the morning I would figure her out and know what to do. So, this morning I got out my paint and just started going over anything I didn't like. At some points I felt I was making her worse, but just really pushed thru and decided she is finished. She's far from perfect... But, thank goodness folk art is not fine art. I didn't feel like crying and I only told myself I suck once. So, I can just be happy with getting whatever I need emotionally "out" during the process of creating. I get compliments on my art from ladies who really like my "style" so I should be happy that, "well, at least I have a style" right? I struggle and flail as an artist almost every day. Mostly because I just like to wing it and have no patience. I am learning how to deal with my critical nature each and every day.
