I didn't really think I had a problem with this until I started looking at what has been really holding me back in setting up an on-line business and also in sharing my paintings and music. I want everything to be perfect and the best before I share it with anyone.
For example, this little drawing. I have had this concept in mind all week to share on my blog, but hadn't actually put pencil to paper to create it, because I didn't think the idea was good enough and I thought I didn't have enough of the right photos to work from. Once I got started, I didn't end up hardly using any photos. Secondly, I didn't manage to get it painted first before my Monday blog deadline came around. I wasn't going to share, and then I thought "this is the whole doggone point!"
You may have noticed my sign up for a newsletter on the side of the blog. I have decided this year I want to confess and share my creativity hang-ups with the you, in the hopes that I can face them better myself, be accountable and perhaps inspire you to do the same. Even better, it would be nice to get feedback so we can inspire each other. I can't be alone in this fear.
