Art and Fear

Art & Fear: Observations On the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking

An interesting , thought-provoking little book.  It’s a quick read, so as not to distract (for too long) from your actual work, whatever your creative discipline may be.   I especially liked the section on FINDING YOUR WORK.  The authors say:  “Look at your work and it tells you how it is when you hold back or when you embrace.  When you are lazy, your art is lazy; when you hold back, it holds back; when you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in its pockets.  But when you commit, it comes on like blazes. “
