Painting is a creative and cathartic experience - no matter what your canvas. So BeYOUtiful You.
What is most important? That YOU believe in your talent.
It doesn't matter if you are a new painter, or have 30 years experience. We all have wobbles. We all worry that our work is not good enough. We have to remember we cannot please everyone all the time! Taste is objective.
Feel the happiness as you create and it will reflect in your work.
Remember why you love to paint. Always. Even when things are not working the way you want them to - it happens to all of us!
YOUR CREATIVITY IS UNIQUE to you.
No one can create in the exact same way you do. That brush stroke you just laid down - no one can repeat that. It is yours! Own it!
ENJOY the feeling of creating - and create from your heart. Do not compare yourself to others.
Admire the work of others.
Congratulate others on their talent.
Be inspired by what you see. BUT DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF.
The biggest thing that will suck the joy, and productivity, from your work, is comparing it to the work of others.
