Vulnerability stops you from making your art.
Lately, the topic of vulnerability keeps resurfacing as well as my own feelings of where I am going with my new direction to focus primarily in the world of black and white. It’s a big, or some may say, a drastic change to what I had been doing so being vulnerable raises it ugly head from time to time.
No matter what genre or style we gravitate towards, there are always many others in the social media world that are doing something similar so we can always find that place of comfort within ourselves that we are not alone in what we are creating.
Feeling misunderstood makes you feel alone. Feeling alone stops you from creating your art.
But, how comfortable are we allowing ourselves to be? Are we taking risks? Are we doing something we have never done before?
Allowing ourselves to completely vulnerable and possibly misunderstood is what I believe is a trait that has set so many great artists in our history and present apart from the competition. No matter what their craft had them creating they embraced being alone.
They embraced being misunderstood.
They faced vulnerability and in turn developed their style and created ‘their’ art.
Create art that’s misunderstood.
If you do, you might just be onto something that is bigger than you can imagine.
