Catering to Fears

“…catering to fears of being misunderstood leaves you dependent upon your audience. “

Art and Fear by David Bales and Ted Orland

BrushesThis week I am brought back to considering how the need to be understood affects my process of art  making.

 

Questions for consideration:

  1. What contributes to my feeling “understood”?
  2. Do I understand and accept myself and my art making?
  3. How important is that to me and my process?
  4. How would it feel if no one “understood” my art or liked it?
