I__™m having one of those days.
Do you ever think you can paint " or have some artistic talent - and then you look around to see work that just blows you away and then you think ___What was I thinking? I can™t paint (draw, sculpt, fill in the blank). Now THERE is a painter (sculptor, fill in the blank)!___
Even after I tell myself not to compare my work to other__™s work, what do I do but compare myself to other__™s work! Will I never learn! Will I ever truly get beyond caring what others think? Is it only me? Or do you feel that way too?
The painting posted here is my most recent watercolor. I feel like I__™m just about equally good in watercolor, acrylic and casein and still like realism, but for the first time I__™m feeling a need to move beyond that, but not exactly into abstraction. I can__™t seem to put my thoughts onto paper. Can you feel my confusion???
Guess I__™ll just keep plugging away over here in the slow lane of the artistic highway until something prompts my next breakthrough. Guess it will come in due time, like most things in life.
