The more art classes and workshops I take, the more I realize that I have this pattern of always loving the other participants work more than my own. I’m taking an adult art class with some girlfriends and we’re learning how to do block printing by carving rubber, and although, I thought my design was okay, I was really into everyone else’s designs more. I have to keep reminding myself, that this thing, i.e., a piece of rubber or canvas or whatever I am creatively working on, does not define me, or mean anything about me. That, what is important is learning the techniques, and then practicing them, taking what I learn about my preferences for certain lines, shapes, texture, composition, etc., into account, so that I can create art that I love as much as I love other people’s art.
I love you and all that you bring to the table. Thank you for sharing your creative process. Love h
