I am very shy and quiet. It is very hard to be outgoing especially in a crowd. I envy those who are able to meet and greet strangers with such ease. How does this relate to art? Well I am fine working in the studio and networking online....but when it comes to promoting my work and meeting other artists and collectors in person, it is a challenge for me.
How am I overcoming this fear? I am finding that the more I am out there teaching and doing demos the easier it becomes. Being prepared before a presentation is very helpful. I am more confident when I have practiced and prepared what I will say, I am much more relaxed. It is getting better!
No matter what your art fear is it all boils down to the same solution. You need to work at it and practice. As Alyson points out in her post "There is no Magic Bullet. Take Daily Action and keep moving forward." Thanks Alyson for today's food for thought!
Today's raven paintings were done using a limited 'Old Masters Palette' You can see a photo of this palette in this recent post HERE
