A quick note..

There are days when you simply over think everything. A feeling of being overwhelmed ensues and questioning of the very idea that you try to make a living as an artist. First and foremost ..STOP! Go for a walk, get a scrap of paper and just draw, paint ...play. Enjoy being swept along on the silliness of mixing colors at random ,scribbling doodles ...gazing at the clouds that then become the shapes that dreamers see. Remember ...just do it!

Right... just do it, and for goodness sake quit "thinking" *smile. I do think we need to have a goal of some sort, but don't over think it like I do so often. It just seems to slow me down, when in fact it really is the correct path. I often think it's because I start telling myself I'm not capable of doing "it" well, etc. As you said, "STOP - JUST DO IT".
