You are in good company. Ugh.
Owch! Guilty of some of those... Makes you think doesn't it! Number 10 is a bit like me... I'm not that impatient, but I do tend to go for overwhelming goals... I'm never quite sure at what point a person has to admit that goals are overwhelming and unachievable... I know that some things actually are, but it is better to die trying, than expire before you're dead?!!
#2definitely number two (although i am guilty of the others as well).my mother still doesn't know why i am so attracted to clay. she always thought i would be a painter or illustrator.i stopped showing her my work a couple of years ago.My oldest brother on the other hand is very supportive.
Wow... I actually finally dropped off the list!
Boy I could check off about all of those! That is a great chart..I need to get a copy of that for my studio :) Jen
Hear Hear. Guilty your honour....
Mea culpa! Although I learned many years ago not to speak of my work with family....which turned into, "You are so secretive about your stuff." Me, "I didn't think you were interested......and I never talk about work in progress." Changed the dynamic enormously!Any way I can get a download of this?Word verification.....DAYWOR.....short for dayworry! ;)
This is amusing, especially imagining a line of artist freaks taking a formal and precise bow to "societal pressures".
I'm guilty of all of these at one point or another. It's good advice. I was talking to Janet the other day about pottery ribs and then started wondering how it's possible that she can stay awake while I babble on about such things.
1, 2, 5, 7, 9, 10...
Damn, me too.
how to feel GOOD about being an artist has only one point.1. do what you LOVE.
LOVE IT ALL!YES, LOVE WHAT YOU DO!!!!!!!
Great post! And so true!
