Artists and confidence…..man it’s a double edge sword to deal with.
I know for me I’ve struggled with confidence thinking that my artwork isn’t good enough to share with the world. Confidence can be an amazing feeling and it can be terrifying as well…. and how I deal with it can impact my artwork as well.
I’m slowly learning to just let go and putting myself and my artwork out there…. embrace whatever I’m feeling at the moment, not fearing the moment, and just enjoying interacting with people who see my artwork and learning to humble myself to their commentary…. it’s a freeing act to just surrender yourself and stop letting your confidence or lack of control you have control you.
I know, if I go back to that brave little girl I was exploring the world around me that I can grab this new journey by its tail and succeed.
I have become obsessed with “abstract photography” and seeing what I can create using everyday items around my home. In the above images I used oil, water, acrylic paint, nail polish as well as Q-tips. I never realized the use of such simple things could be used in creating something so beautiful. The creative process was so freeing, as well as exciting for me, I plan on continuing in this type of photography,
Looking at abstract art and letting my mind free to interrupt what it sees is always exciting for me. The emotions both mentally and visually that abstract art has on people I believe allows us to expand our minds in so many ways, and allows us to escape reality for a short time………………And who doesn’t need a little time to just ESCAPE AND RELAX from our busy lives.
