I'm sure all of us at some stage have done at LEAST one thing on the list I know I have done several lol so it can be a good reminder if you are feeling low about your work just give it a read and remind yourself to STOP! lol

Very True thank you

Can you please post this in words rather than a JPG file or whatever this is? My screen reader won't read this.
Lord, help me to be the person my bears and dolls think I am.
Sure Arctobear - here it is:

How to feel miserable as an artist (or, what not to do, underline any that currently apply)

1. Constantly compare yourself to other artists.
2. Talk to your family about what you do and expect them to cheer you on.
3. Base the success of your entire career on one project.
4. Stick with what you know.
5. Undervalue your expertise.
6. Let money dictate what you do.
7. Bow to societal pressures.
8. Only do work that your family would love.
9. Do whatever the client/customer/gallery owner/patron/investor asks.
10. Set unachievable/overwhelming goals. To be accomplished by tomorrow.

Thanks for making that accessible.
Lord, help me to be the person my bears and dolls think I am.
OMG!!! I think I am ALL of those!! You know, those are some of the reasons why I gave up doing the tiny ooak clay babies. Such a shame. I'm hoping that reborning will draw me back into the clay babies.
I can so relate to some of that list!
