Believe it or not, I have some tragically awful art days, too.
I know some of you think that someone who’s an artist for a living doesn’t suffer that. Maybe you think we don’t get impostor syndrome. That we can draw or paint anything. Not so!
I had a tough day yesterday, and I’ll tell you all about it in the video!

For some people just leaving the studio helps overcome a rough art day. Not for me. I take the failure-feeling with me, and next time I walk into the studio, I’m nervous about getting my mojo back!

What works for you on a bad art day?
Let me know in a comment…..and if your method isn’t always just what’s needed, try mine. Get back on the horse and prove to your inner voice that it’s time to hush up with the insults. 🙂
