An artist feels vulnerable to begin with; and yet the only answer is to recklessly discard more armour.” Eric Maisel
Vulnerability can pretty much be a constant in the life of an artist. A feeling everyone experiences, but a whole different beast of an emotion for an artist and completely necessary for the creative process. The universal question of an artist; Is my work good enough? In my case, this includes what I say about my paintings, often wondering if I am sharing too much. An artist once told me that I must keep every statement about my work super happy. He said this is what people want to hear. Following this strategy would be lying to you about what inspires my paintings. In order to continue artistically exploring, I need to embrace vulnerability.
