“You murder your paintings.”

This is some of the only feedback I remember from my university days. And while it clearly stung enough I remember it to this day, I also remember agreeing in complete frustration with my professor when she and I talked about my work.

Unfortunately it took a decade or more before I really understood the implications of that feedback and how to use it to my advantage as an artist.

Hi, my name is Carrie and here on Artist Strong I help artists like you build your skill and develop your unique artist voice. Today we talk about how to stop overworking your art.

This is a clip from Inside my program Self-Taught to Self-Confident, where we talk about our specific natures as creatives, 

whether we tend to overwork (or under-develop) our art, 

and how to use this information moving forward in our studio practice.

I encourage you to do the same. Subscribe to my channel, then tell me in the comments:

Is it better for your art to focus on details and refining the art, or to let go and focus more on the bigger picture?
