I'm at such a strange point in my creative life right now, I feel like I'm struggling to define how I want my style to be. I feel content with what I produce but at the same time I want my pictures to show so much more, to be bigger and brighter and better. I find though that my style is limiting me, that the rules of how I do the lines and faces are restrictive. Yet all the new things I try and create don't feel complete. I guess it's called growing pains. I also feel that my work has not reached a level that is ready for the galleries, and perhaps I'm personally not ready for the galleries. The pure work ethic that one must go through to produce for a show is amazingly time consuming. Also the the small size of my works would not be able to fetch prices that galleries need in sales. I hope with time that I will evolve to a point where these things are not a problem, but it takes a mind shift on my part. This shift seems to be happening but I think time is needed, perhaps even years. I will need to grow, learn, and become more open to change. I hope I'm on some sort of right path.
