Good days come and go…but I alway seem to return to when I feel like my art just isn’t good enough to do what I want to do with it. I’m very happy to be where I am and with what I have accomplished so far, but I wish I was a little further along. I feel I lack the skills needed to accomplish what I need to do in my art to push myself forward. I lack the finances needed for school, so I’m diving head-first into YouTube and other sites for my education. I’ve learned a lot, but it’s not the same as a classroom setting, tools in hand and someone personally showing me what I’m doing.
I’ve given up I don’t know how many times. I throw my pencil or brush down in frustration and tell myself that I’ve reached my end. I want to pack up all of my art supplies; my pencils, pens, brushes, canvases, paint…and just chuck them in the dumpster. But I can’t. No matter how much I want to quit, I can’t bring myself to rid myself of creating art. No matter how bad I think it is, those good days still come along once in a while to pull me back in.
