The Bravery or the Shame

So in the last year or so, it's become screamingly apparent that I may well be one of the worst judges of my own work. Again and again my least favorite pieces and even pieces I'm convinced aren't even worth finishing are several other people's favorites! It's a very strange thing to be the creator and come to understand that you don't know which pieces of your own work are the best. lol.

It's also super cool because it helps me to like and continue to work on pieces I thought were garbage. It doesn't change my mind on what pieces I think are good. I don't care that hardly anyone else likes the pieces that I love the most. They are good to me and that's all that matters.

I'm making more work again. And I've got nine small pieces traveling to Chip Kersten's, Riverwood Art & Frame, new gallery location in Eau Claire. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and check them out next month. Let me know what you think.
