Gossip Girl / painters block
I think I should be painting more cows. In general. I mean I love their shape, their colors, their personalities. It is one of the subjects I come back to often and when I'm in a bit of a rut, it is one of the only subjects that is almost guaranteed to remind me of how much I love to paint. I sometimes get intimidated before I even put paint on my palette. Yeah, it's fear of the frustration that I might be setting myself up for. That frustration can be really emotionally draining when the passion to create is so strong. It usually doesn't happen when I paint the cows and trees though. I don't know why I feel the need to share my thoughts on this except that I believe some of you other artists must also struggle with the same hesitance to get started on a painting. Of course at this stage of my career I know to ignore those feelings and to fight through it which almost always works itself out just fine, but it is very interesting to me that I still have bouts of utter (no pun intended :) insecurity. Just keeping it real for you guys. Let me know if you can relate, I'd love to explore this phenomenon... painters block I guess.
