Day 20 Abstract and this one I love too!!!!
It's better than worrying about what other people think.. which are really just my own gremlins that seem to creep into my head when I least expect it. I wrote a comment on one of my new blog follower's and someone I'm following now. She was having trouble with gremlins of self doubt. She was struggling with needing validation. I told her to give it to herself. I need to go do what I told her to do.. to give myself some affirmations. I always want some artists that I admire to like my work but they never say anything about it. So I make up reasons why they don't. I really think that they secretly get together and say .. remember we can't ever say anything about her work else she think she is good at what she does. As if I did feel good maybe the work would sour or turn to mud. So where does that come from? Who knows .. maybe being told by a boy that I was good at art but that I knew it really messed with my head. I always wonder if he was angry because he thought I THOUGHT I was good at art? This has always been a statement that pops into my head like a car wreck. I don't want to care about his words or what anyone else thinks of my work. I do like hearing compliments but I don't have to have them to keep going. And I'm not planning to quit painting any time soon. I have to paint I have to make art. I really just love the experiments of combining different colors and textures together. I feel good about the way that these experiments have really been interesting. I'm going to go jump around my house and sing and be silly .. and take my little Molly outside for walk.
