struggles of an artist
Free Art Friday "what if"
Art News Blog always seems to bring up issues that stay with me, and the post about Hazel Dooney is no different. Some of the diary entries posted on Art News resonated with me. Hazel said: "When I'm not happy with my art, everything in my life is fucked. When it's going well, everything is perfect". Oh my, how true this is for me (and I suspect for many of you out there). I feel this rumbling agitation that gnaws at my soul and it doesn't go away until I do something I like. Usually my close artist friends can tell, just as I can tell when they feel the same.
Talking about discomfort, San said she can't imagine me being out of my comfort zone, but I don't feel gifted. I have gotten lazy and comfortable, and I don't think I've even begun to tap into what I'm capable of.
We have a NEW artist to the blogging world cat-in-a-box, so why not pop over and say hi :)
Guess who won the pizza box competition, yes Pollocksthebollocks. I want pizza just so I can have his box-congratulations!
