I’m taking easier classes next semester and I’m so happy I’m allowing myself to do this.
it’s either really cold and dry like today at 16 degrees or it’s slightly above 32 and incredibly rainy
I WANT SNOW
I mean honestly now last summer I had the pleasure of meeting some central oregon artists at a festival and SO many of them had “never had talent” but took a class when they were in their 40s and began painting and are now selling art
"why can everyone draw/write/sing/etc I don’t have a talent"
okay maybe I’m coming from a different perspective because I can draw. As cliche as this sounds, I’ve drawn for as long as I was able to hold a pencil. I’ve read books, watched videos, learned, and improved. Am I always 100% happy with what I do? No. Do I still have tons of room for improvement? Yes.
A small amount of this comes from natural talent. Only the part of me that first wanted to draw, to pick up an crayon, and create. But this does not have to start at a young age, this desire is always present in us, somewhere! Stop treating yourself as a static being that cannot try new things. Yes maybe you’ll look at your first few paintings, stories, songs, whatever as inadequate but everyone starts out somewhere. Find a guitar, encounter your creativity. You can always grow.
