I'm discouraged today despite my best mind over matter.  I will not buy into this feeling and must be tired.  
I'm holding a contest for a free DA print on my Facebook page Heather Howell Art - painter. Check it out.
Whoever submitted Image 5276-1-2 to the group "Neglected Beauties" I just wanted to say thank you.
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.  
I'm discouraged today despite my best mind over matter.  I will not buy into this feeling and must be tired.
