It’s never easy to be self critical without crossing over into self doubt. I find it important to look at myself and find what I can improve, but sometimes I think maybe that’s dangerous. I have a friend who always tells me I’m too hard on myself, but I always think I can’t lie to myself either. It comes out when I paint a lot. I know what I like and often have a vision…so if I don’t achieve that, I have no choice but to be self critical. So where is the line and how do I avoid it? I’m not sure I have the answers. Just a bit of early morning musing and probably more a rhetorical question than anything else.
