I think it comes from feelings of inadequacy when there are painters around me that I think are more skilled than me. Thanks for this thoughtful essay; I always enjoy your posts and pics but this post is important food for thought for me. Maybe I need to push myself to paint with others more often to get over the ugly feelings of inferiority – then I might feel less like I am missing out on the camaraderie and my art will improve as an added bonus. So I’ll start with you as an artist I admire. Let’s paint together next time we are at the same event! Reply Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.
