|week 45 - how important are the opinions of others about you and/or your art?|
it is easier to let go of critics about my art, but not at first. i remember one time i had a community art teacher tell me that my art was whimsical and i would never be able to sell my art. i was crushed. those words haunted me for a long time. i eventually was able to let go of her opinion of my work. i have come to the realization that my art is for me and if anyone else likes it then that is icing on the cake.
i had a revalation when i realized that everything is subjective. depending on the time or circumstance every one's opinion would be different. i can't please every one all of the time. it's an impossible goal. so i please myself. it has been a pretty liberating concept for me.
what about you - how important are other people's opinions of you?
