Do you ever get the feeling that you can’t paint any more?
I’m very strict with myself and I know that I have to cross a certain line for me to be happy with my work. I’ve been falling short of that imaginary line for a while now so my confidence has suffered.
I sold my first painting not so long ago and I’m wondering if this is playing on my mind…was all my artistic endeavours aimed at selling a painting? Now that I have done so do I have to put my brushes away? I don’t think so, as I still want to capture things I see on canvas. And I have another imaginary line (higher than the other one) that I want to reach.
I guess anyone that paints has gone through this, and painting through the bad stuff is the way to go forward.
Maybe writing this here will help me too.
