"I'm not really an artist because I need to transfer a design before I can paint"
"I'll never do much more than create accurate renderings of a subject. That's not art that is just copying"
"I don't possess any originality at all"
"I will never be a good enough artist to make a living painting"
All that being said, a lot of this probably comes from the fact that my back has been killing me all week and having been able to sleep for more than an hour or two at a time. I just feel so discouraged now. My main goal this year is to make at least a part-time income from my art. How the hell am I suppose to do that when I can't even come up with a personal style or original concept?
