I've been keeping very busy working on projects and doing what I love to do most. I am doing 2 online classes simultaneously but, of
course, I end up doing my own thing anyway. I'm not sure what's up with that. But I am learning new techniques and gaining courage to have confidence in what I do best...
What is that you ask? Well, I'm not sure but I do know that my art drives me and somehow when I start I seem to just know what to do. It's all very visual. I'm trying very hard not to drive myself into needing perfection and to just do as much as needed and feel satisfied with the overall appearance. I do, however, feel the need to get feedback from my peers which is why I've joined so many groups. The feedback is awesome when I get it and I also give back a lot. I think it's so important to support each other and tell the artist what you like about the work they do.
I'm also trying different techniques as I would really like to be a bit more stylized. I'm not sure that I'm comfortable viewing my finished work when I'm "out of the box". I'll just have to do more of it, get more comfortable with it or just accept that I like what I do better. If you don't try....you never find out.
