Face your battle with artistic perfectionism. It is what keeps me from making Art for months, weeks, or years, this is what makes my blog and social media posts ambiguous, and this is the main reason that made me torture myself by changing my posts on the blog so many times. However, you apparently won’t be ready to think it escape. Go with the flow, move forward fearlessly, and get creative on the go without ever overthinking about planning, getting attached to too much, excessive procrastination, and whatever else you can think of instead of making Art with lotus drawing?
The point is, it’s always based on fear. Fear of judgment, fear of hating our work, fear that it may not look the way we imagined it, fear of realizing that we have to insist on something happening to us. We are afraid of comments on social networks. We are so scared of what we tell about ourselves in the course of our work, of what people think of us when they see it. Many of us are even afraid to say to people that we are making Art. The antidote is, of course, simple. One of those fundamental truths seems so simple, but we do our best not to follow it. The treatment is to make Art, right?
Here are some small lessons I’ve learned lately
Present yourself too if you don’t need to. Work even if you are so tired or angry that you lie on your drawing board, scolding your brushes while you work. Put all your senses into the Art you are doing at that moment. Art is not meant to paralyze you with horror and darkness. The question will be there, but you can make friends with it and use it to fuel your energy.
Do a lot of work. I like having multiple parties active simultaneously, moving from room to room to keep the momentum going. Are these elements helpful to you? Can you use them to come to terms with perfectionism? Seldom, even if you now know all of that, the way someone talks about it can finally make it through. I just saw Jesse Reno’s video on his website homepage and had to pause it to write something that, according to him, would mark the problem of perfectionism in Art:
“I feel like you can make 10 good mistakes in the time it takes to make a perfect move. Is there an ideal move? I don’t know, it looks messed up, and so I’m not going to consider another 10 possibilities because I’m so focused on one thing where, if you keep it open, it’s like a treasure hunt, for real. Guy. As far as I know, he just understood the whole reason for making Art. It is the kind of arousal you feel in your lower abdomen as you go beyond thought and go straight to complete intuition. When you come across this “sweetie,” that’s when you realize how funny you are.
Well, I know many people cope with all of this in their artistic attempts. Unless Big Magic and The War of Art wouldn’t be parts that would have a permanent place on every creative person’s bedside table, it sure helps to know that we’re in good company with our fears, but we still have to push our asses into the studio and get our job done. If you need a dose of inspiration while making Art, play the Jesse Reno video in the background.
Or include audio in Big Magic and The War of Art. (Another good Stephen Press field piece, Do the Job.) So obviously, I couldn’t have written this article with a clear conscience if I hadn’t done the design now. I plan to post more in a few days and officially unveil my new Shopify store!
