Art Movement...between confidence and self-doubt
Updated: Apr 17, 2021
As a conceptual impressionist painter I experience something I call 'art movement', the battle most artists encounter between confidence and self-doubt. Ego purgatory for emerging painters like myself. Fear of not being good enough, but nonetheless real. Every day that I paint, which is most days, for hours on end, I must first approach my wall easel. This ritual at times takes 30 or so minutes. But the moment I cross that threshold I become a painted warrior - unapologetic, unafraid, and driven until that self-doubt collides with my intuition and BAM! I ruin a magical piece of artwork.
