You are right, I should try and relax more into it, however, I am struggling at the moment with ability, the equivalent to writers block, everything I do is rubbish but I will try and persevere.
I'll refer you back to earlier comments I made...enjoy every stroke of the brush or pencil. If you're not feeling it, be kind to yourself step away and return when you are much calmer. Writers or artists block is simply your mind heaping too much pressure on yourself to deliver. Basically, you're trying too hard.
How did you get to be so wise? You are, as always, right. I think I was partly blaming DA, I adore looking at the wonderful creations it affords me but was then despondent that I could never compete. Of course I don't have to, it is not a competition! In future I will just enjoy taking inspiration and not worry about whether my efforts cut the mustard! I will try and get back to just enjoying the craft. Thank you for taking the time to put me right.
This is great! Showing your dark side p'raps, Jen?
