Every Artist is an Art Critic

Every Artist is an Art Critic and the worst kind!   Self Critical. Seriously now-Are you even going to try to argue with yourself in defense when the evidence is so clearly stacked against you in your favor? 
When you paint you see every mistake. When you sculpt you see every dimension out of place. when you draw you use your eraser more than your pencil. You agonize over the market, what people like, trendy colors and being sooo very different. Which turns out isn’t very different at all.
Researching, experimenting, and creating in every new medium like a mad scientist that rivals Dr Jekyll on any day of the week.  Artists view everything visually and they create an overabundant amount of uncontainable creative energy usually vomited on unsuspecting viewers. Calm down- you will get there – ART is the process not a destination because seriously you will never arrive – slow down – what you cannot do to day you will do tomorrow.  Art is bigger than any one person could ever imagine , become or see.  Enjoy your art because trust me tomorrow you will look at it with a critical eye and think wow  —oh thank goodness I am not painting like that anymore and then in a year from now your ART CRITIC will rise again to say WOW  I am so relieved I am better than last year – —-. And so it goes with every passing year you will succeed one step at a time.

The purpose of creativity is to connect with your audience not compete with your peers—

Here is a tip for the overly anxious self critical artist– Sit down have a coffee and bask in your success while drinking cappuccino’s with your friends talk about things you know absolutely nothing about. It works.
Trust me I know – there are lots of pictures on here I am seriously considering attacking with the delete button. So if you check out my blog in a week– No surprise if the pictures are gone. You will understand why. I am an artist –its just the curse.
