No resolutions for me just another goal - Make Art just for me

Goal 2: Make Art just for me

I think I suffer from performance anxiety.

I am a member of several local art groups. I am very fortunate to be part of these local groups. I greatly enjoy meeting, exchanging art and ideas with these talented ladies.

As much as I look forward to these meetings, they all fill me with anxiety as the date approaches.

Why? I'm not quite sure. Skill, expectation, self doubt, general cluelessness, social awkwardness. I'm pretty sure I'm kinda hard on myself too.

I have NEVER been made to feel unwelcome at any of these meetings, so I know the anxiety is self-inflicted. Maybe I just need a good therapist. lol.

How do I measure this goal?

I have been checking out challenge blogs as of late. Here are some that have caught my eye. If you have any to share, please leave a comment with the URL.

4x4 friday
gothic arches
mixed media mondays
think monday - think ATC
wednesday stamper

I'm going to choose a challenge and post at least one completed piece of art each week. (note to self: that's a total of 52). I may choose to do an 'expired' challenge instead of the current one because it's just for me. Right?

p.s. Is it significant to this entry that I capitalized the 'A' in art?
