Just a little thought that came to me this morning when someone said that they had always wanted to paint but couldn't. Why not give it a shot? Who knows? In a few years you could be having your own solo show at a local gallery, and how cool would that be?
The Van Gogh quote above is one that comes to me time and time again as I deal with that overly critical inner voice that tells me I'm not good enough. I know that I am good enough, I just need to work harder and pay more attention to what I am doing when I'm making things. I guess that voice is good because it makes me try harder, but, so often, we use it as an excuse for not trying. What about you? Do you struggle with your own inner critic?
So many people have offered me many kind words in response to the art that I currently have up at Spark and I am so thankful to them both for their kindness, but also for the constructive criticism that some have offered, encouraging me to keep working to achieve even better results.
So there's my thought for the week...Please stop by the gallery and see my show if you haven't done so already. I'd love to see you :)
