The Inner Critic
Everyday I look forward to the hour or so I can "work" in my art journal. As I sat down this evening, I flipped through my latest journal,critiquing every page. I realized I was no longer just having fun....I was trying to "improve" and falling short in my estimation.
So.... I decided to just play and draw one of those silly girls I used to doodle in school instead of learning math.
I didn't line up her eyes, decide where the light was coming from, shade, or try in any way to "make art". I just doodled and splashed around some paint and ink.
Look who showed up on my page! My "Inner Critic"! Flame hair, tight little lips, and condescending sloe-eyes Yep...that's her!
Do you have an Inner Critic? What does she look like?
