There is this thing, called “The Artist’s Curse”, and I have it and I need to keep reminding myself that I have it and I am okay. LOL! Basically, it is the phenomenon that makes artists unable to see their art as any good, no matter what other people may say about it. There is a nifty video about it here. I watched it a long, long time ago, but I forgot about it and, just a few days ago, someone directed me to that video, again. And, once again, I was shocked at how well the artist who made the video knew me and was oddly comforted knowing that I am not the only one and that I will be okay with it. So, I am now ready to tackle this coming week.
I have been working on my commission, learning to use my camera, taking photos, and playing in my art journal and sketchbook. Here is what I can show you right now:
A barn across the road from us, taken in manual mode in a misty twilight with full 26x zoom, low f-stop, low shutter speed, and low ISO. I don’t know if I will ever take notes on my exact numbers.
I will post some of my art journal pages in another post.
Have a good week.
