Why do I post art that isn’t my best…creativity lesson


This was an entry as part of a journal entry for my 30 day art journal. I do with all of my heart want to be an artist! I hear that you should share your best work with others and doing other wise can put too much pressure on me. I suppose this is true but…I do if for a reason. To show the world my story of practice and hard work. That to become an artist or any success as you define it, you have to work hard and put in much effort. How ever hard you think you have to work you have to work even harder. You have to step out of your comfort zone. I am taking this plunge and showing you my work. I love my ideas and my lettering needs work but who cares. I believe in my work and I am doing this for the love of it. So this week I want you to do the same. Think about what you loved doing as a kid? Was it drawing, painting, playing outside? What? Just create it as best you can. Make something today even if it sucks. These aren’t my words but from another wonderful artist. These just ring out loud and clear. Everyone sees success and they forget that they are people too just like you and me. The cry, hurt, sweat and feel fear. They were there once upon a time struggling to make it! Their art was terrible and discouraged in the beginning but now they are successful because they stuck with it and kept going!

This week just draw something. Think about your childhood days and what you loved and just color it, paint it and so on.
