bliss

Artist: John William Waterhouse

I just wanted to share with you that I love when someone appreciates my artwork! I must tell you how amazing it feels!


My self-confidence always waivers when I create something ~ do other artists feel this way too? But when you have someone actually pay money for something you created, it is an affirmation of some kind that what I made is good and worth owning.


OK, now I just want to go create more . . .

I have loved J.W. Waterhouse so long. He is truly a master of pre-rapphaelite paintings, in my eyes, but still there is nothing from him in books about artists!

Such lovely prints. And I know exactly how you feel about your art, because I feel the same way about mine. But, you need never doubt yours. It is truly an expression of the beauty that is in you.

Your art is wonderful Dawn! I bet it's a total high to sell a piece! I have doubts all the time. I think it's natural and I think it pushes us to find our true artist's voice. Love, Jamie

Hi, Dawn - I totally understand what you're saying. Yes, when someone chooses your work, and agrees to give you money it does feel affirming. :-)

I can so relate to this Dawn, I often feel insecure about my work when I do it. It is a great feeling when someone gets you and loves your work! You have a beautiful talent and definatly a girl after my own heart!

Have a great day! Heather

Yes, my confidence does waver too. Then people love what I create, and I can feel good about it.

The first picture in your post is one of my all-time favorites.

Thanks for the tip about hanging plates around my mirror. I did feel like it was a little narrow and needs help. But I am wall-decor-challenged.

So true- that little bit of validation goes a long way! Consider yourself validated :)

Cindy said...

I certainly feel that way. It does make you feel good that someone appreciates what you do and it is very validating. Your work is beautiful and I always enjoy your blog.

Lori said...

My youngest daughter and I have been out buying art supplies for next weeks vacation today. Can't wait.

Joy said...

Dawn- you are truly a sweet person maybe the only one I know and I am glad you are my friend and I am very glad I inspired you to make "Froggy Love"- he is the only decoration in my new office. I am very thankful to have you and Cindy as friends.

as artists we always tend to be our own worst critics...
the thing is though..to love what you do...
if it makes you smile..and makes you feel good when you either create that really unique piece..(or for myself as a photographer..if I can capture that really special moment or object in time in a unique way(like a family at the beach..or what have you)....well..that is what really excites me)..and you'll be surprised ..that so often the things that we like..others do too.
