The question stopped me in my tracks because just a week earlier, I had decided to drop several long-held assumptions and “go public” with my artwork.
I have always drawn and painted, and over the last year I have become much more committed to my art work. But still, almost no one had ever seen it.
What assumptions were holding me back all that time? Too many, I’m afraid.
Here are just some of them: No one will want to see my work. It’s not good enough. Black and white art isn’t real art. I’m not a real artist because I have a full-time job. People might hate my drawings … the list goes on and on.
