When you’re a perfectionist, it’s easy to see the flaws in every project you take on. I’ve done that with everything from my home renovation projects to my artwork. Somebody gives me a compliment and all I can think of is, “It could be better.”
When is it ever good enough? I’m not sure, but I’ve finally decided to give some of my art to my friends and family, who have asked for it. Why? Because if they like it, and they tell me so, why should I question that? Still, it feels very personal and exposed, but I suppose if art doesn’t have our heart and soul into it, it really isn’t art, is it?
