DON’T FALL INTO THESE ARTIST TRAPS

May 12, 2020

I recently asked all of ya’ll on my Instagram page – what is one topic you would like for me to talk about in an upcoming vlog? And with an overwhelming response – I received a number of questions all relating to something along the lines of the fear of starting a painting or having anxiety during a painting – mainly spurred on by this nagging mindset of perfectionism.

As I read through all your responses I was amazed to find three common pitfalls or traps that we all seem to fall into when it comes to perfectionism and our art. Below is the video I made responding to these common pitfalls. So make sure to check it out and then scroll down for a quick summary of the pitfalls below.

THE THREE COMMON TRAPS OF PERFECTIONISM

TRAP #1: ANALYSIS PARALYSIS
TRAP #2: IMPOSTER SYNDROME
TRAP #3: THE BIG BAD TROLL

Carpe Diem

MEANING TO SEIZE THE DAY

As stated in the video – make sure to seize the day and take action against all of these traps! I hope you enjoyed this post and happy painting ya’ll!

    Thank you I never realized all the three things were the case with me and they happen to others too. These tips to overcome them are very good and I hope to remember them.
