Thought Warrior...WIP

This is my Thought Warrior. Not quite complete, but still ready with shield in hand to ward off all the critics and negative thoughts that come with everyday life and everyday art.
I recently re-read "Art & Fear" (after seeing a post about it on the wonderful Kate Kendrick's blog) and it was filled with a lot of reminders that I needed to hear at this time. Funny how that happens. Here's just one passage: "The point is that you learn how to make your work by making your work, and a great many pieces that you make along the way will never stand out as finished art. The best you can do is make art you care about- and lots of it! The rest is largely a matter of perseverance."
So off I go....back to the drawing board. Paintbrush in hand, I will persevere and enjoy the journey! Happy Sunday all. I hope everyone is off to a great start for a great week!

Great piece. Keep it close so you can be reminded that the critics need to stay far away! xoxo, Fran http://www.artsyfran.com
