I go back before between wanting to share my work and caring what other think and doing it for myself. I think there is always going to be a little of both and that is good. Doing it for myself means that I enjoy it, it is a passion, there is an honesty and uniqueness in the work. I care about expanding my comfort zone, and make it enjoyable and challenging. Caring about externalization means I am self awareness of how I affect others. It goes beyond the art itself. Am I supporting others? Am I holding myself accountable for increasing the quality in my art, and raising that bar? Internally am I looking for inspiration? Am I sharing with those who inspire me, that I am grateful? I'm thankful for their practice, quality, inspiration and support. We bounce off of each other. Am I getting a big head- that is something I always worry about. I can't afford to become lazy.
