Loneliness is a kind of winter. And you drag me, kicking and screaming, into some kind of bright summer. -Ian Thomas
It is invigorating to finally decide to dedicate your life to what brings you joy. Being an artist is a vulnerable path. You create something intensely personal and then open your heart to the world.
Not everyone is so fearless.
It’s actually not about being fearless.
anybody tell you you can’t, or to not be afraid.
It's okay to be afraid
because you can't be brave or courageous
Art is a skill like playing an instrument or driving a car. Given a lot of hard work and time, you can improve over time. But… Sometimes practice makes you feel like trash.
It can feel scary because the prospect of failing can be paralyzing.
Do something scary.
Go pick up that paintbrush.
Put in those brush-miles.
