Is your art really that bad?
Picture it, you’re in the ‘creative’ zone, pulling together your masterpiece; pouring your soul into your art… you take a step back, look/listen to it and think, ‘that’s rubbish!’
It is easy to throw away what you’ve done because you don’t think it is good enough. Perhaps it isn’t the best that could be done, perhaps it does need some more work, perhaps it isn’t great. But it is something that you have created.
At these times, why not use the quote from John Cage to question whether it really is rubbish.
The first question I ask myself when something doesn’t seem to be beautiful is why do I think it’s not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason.
