Over and Beyond Frustrated With Myself.

I must vent for a moment because I am so frustrated with myself. I am fairly decent artist but as of recently I haven't liked anything I have been putting out. I am used to drawing portraits of people and painting ladscaped to look realistic. Ever since I have been on Etsy I've been trying to put things out that would sell. To be honest, if my college professor were to see what I've been up to, he would be greatly dissapointed in me. I am feeling the pressure to put out Christmas themed cards but am having a hard time doing that.  I don't know if it's because I'm rushing myself through a drawing or not really giving myself the time for each piece. All I know is I need a mental break from art for a while. So until then I'm going to put up a few pieces I'm actually proud of.


  1. You are without a doubt beyond a "decent" artist. Each of your posted works are exceptional and beautiful. You just have to give yourself the time and feel confident in each piece you create. I know is easier said than done and I wish you well.

  2. The second drawing from the top should be your Christmas card. She looks like a renaissance angel! You are a very talented artist who needs to give herself a break!


  3. Your work is gorgeous! Stop being so hard on yourself!
    Just bc you were one thing in college does not mean thats who you are now. Allow yourself to grow and give it time.

    I find myself in that spot alot. Worrying about the selling and money side of it too often. Just let it go for a bit and see what happens :)

    Or.... take a vacay... say... to my house! *wink wink*
