Comparison: The Thief of Joy
“The painter must give a completely free rein to any feeling or sensations he may have and reject nothing to which he is naturally drawn.”
We often let voices creep into our heads that tell us...
"You're not talented enough to create that."
"That's been done before."
"(insert name here) is better at these types of paintings."
Comparison is truly the thief of joy. 😔
So, take the time to clear the voices. Appreciate your own art, and let the creativity flow. 🤗
Maybe, you see something within the subject or a story that can blossom from it being the focal point that no one else has. Quit selling yourself short, and give yourself the chance to prove how powerful your inner artist truly is.
Technique can be taught, but the inner artist has to be nurtured. 👩🎨
