TO FEEL NOT DO
a lesson learned
This won’t be a long post. I just wanted to discuss something that will build on my last post. So far these 7 months, particularly the last 3, have been a lesson. Battling artist block and burnout is no fun experience but . . . I’ve learned so much.
I’ve learned to be patient, with myself, my work, my mind, and my abilities. I’ve spent less and less time on social media (I’ve literally been posting and disappearing). This has impacted my social reach quite badly, but right now, what I need is space away from things that make me feel like I’m not doing enough, or that what I do is not good enough.
This has allowed me the freedom to create purely through my real-life experiences, unhindered by the pressures of social viewing and trends.
This has surprisingly taught me an artistic ability that I have battled with for most of my artistic career . . . COLOUR.
I was never one to sit and follow lists and pages of theory and how-tos. It never stuck - whether intentional or not. So with all pressures put aside, my venture was on expressing myself, understanding the world around me, and following my initial intuition, and lo and behold I was not as terrible as I had convinced myself to be all these years!
SO what I am trying to say is, create from the heart, do not overthink, and feel your surroundings.
Over and out.
