Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton
As someone who has recently delved into artistic expression, “I am an artist” is a powerful statement for me. I definitely think we are our own worst critic. No matter how many people tell me my art is “good” I still doubt that it is “good enough.” What is good enough when it comes to art though? I don’t paint for my picture to be good enough. I paint to create a space for myself where I can turn off the internal, and sometimes external, voices that tell me I am not adequate. I created this page so that even if I still don’t feel like an artist, I am going to keep telling myself I am until I believe it.
