We've been having a lot of discussion lately, about authenticity and being your true self as an artist, in an art journal group I'm a part of.
With the internet comes ready access to other artist's work, and also praise and criticism of our own creations via social media and other online channels. Does this seep into our subconscious and ultimately influence what we create? Leave a comment and let me know what you think?
This quote by Judy Garland always sums it up well for me — I just have to keep reminding myself.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. —Judy Garland
