|From my Moleskin journal this morning|
You see, I want you to like me. I want you to think my art is incredible and profoundly affects the planet--and as long as I come from that paradigm, I'm being inauthentic. It's also a very safe place --trying to do the right art to please you, writing to impress you ---as long as I indulge those sort of thoughts, I am not living my truth as an artist.
The Artist's Way says "the need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all". So, I am tossing all my "wanna be's" out the window. I'm sharing from the heart - good stuff and bad stuff. My art. My process. I hope you'll like it, and if its not your cup 'o tea--that's okay too.
I have no idea where this journey will take me - makes me wonder what your journey looks like. If you decide to share it (or are sharing it) please let me know:)
Thanks for stopping by.
