Calling All Artist And Crafty People
Calling all artist and crafty people, I would like to have a little conversation about your work, or in reality, I have some questions and would like some opinions to them.
Firstly I know art is subjective and everyone has different taste, what I fall in love with my husband doesn’t like at all and that is not a bad thing, in fact I think its wonderful…..Maybe not wonderful when we are trying to decide what to do in our house, but as a whole I would hate it if we were all the same.
I know as artists we are constantly learning and growing in our craft, It has taken me a very long time to have the confidence to even call myself an artist and often I still think I’m just a pretender, so my I guess, my first question is when do you define someone as an artist for you?? Is it someone who just enjoys drawing painting sculpting or any other art form? Is it just the doing that makes them an artist? Is it someone that had been to art school, studied a verity of different art forms? Is it someone who sell’s their art?? Is it a combination of all of the above?
And that bring me to my second issue, what do you think about your art, when you look back at it what do you see? I am constantly looking at my work and thinking “Oh man I suck. Why do I bother, oh woe is me. ” Then ten minutes later thinking “Yeah I rocked that. I am the queen of my domain.” Am I normal in thinking that? Surely I can’t be the only person that does this? When did you get to a point if you ever did, were you can look at your work and be happy with it? Is this just a self-confidence issue for me? Or is it something that will come in time? I have been told I have under-priced my work when it com to selling it, but then I have such bouts of self-doubt I feel like I am ripping people off if I don’t price it low or I won’t sell it at all
And now I ranting, anyway what do you think drop me a comment below or on Facebook
