Today I actually felt like a good artist. I’ve always strove for improvement in my art, and I continually will, but I’ve always been the kind of person that would self deprecate first and recognize achievement later. Today was different because I didn’t feel like it was fluke. Last week I was able to create a portrait painting I was very happy with and I repeated it today.
I’ll keep working hard to get better. But for now I’m beginning to recognize the results of the last 10+ years of hard work.
What went well? I’m feeling like a darn good artists.
What needs work? Keep going, keep trying to get to the next level.
How can I improve? Keep painting and comparing my art to the artists I admire. Always remember that mastery is an infinite journey I will never arrive.
