Perfection May Be An Artist’s Worst Enemy

Read how to avoid creator’s block with these simple daily habits:

68 Comanche by Leah Giberson

Who hasn’t faced a blank canvas and suddenly drawn a blank (so to speak)?

Author Danielle Krysa, in her new book, Creative Block, interviews 50 artists in an effort to discover some simple things any artist can employ to get over the dreaded blank space.

You don’t have to be a famous painter or sculptor to sympathize with the pains of creative block. Whether it comes on like a giant smack in the face or creeps up on you like a shiver down your spine, we’ve all dealt with the woes of being stuck. You second guess yourself, you dance around ideas and you feel like progress is miles away, all while the joys of creating take a back seat to the pressures we associate with success.

We must learn to let go of being perfect. This comes from Brooklyn-based illustrator Mary Kate McDevitt.

“I do have to step back, take a breather, and realize that it is just a project and not the end of the world if it’s not perfect.”

Boston painter Leah Giberson has set up a morning ritual. Early in the morning before her family gets up, while she is having her morning cup of coffee, she reviews sites that inspire her.

Set up your own “me time” whether it is in the morning, late at night, or *gasp* in the middle of the day!

Other habits include being willing to just have fun, to find inspiration from something “mundane,” to remember that failure is what happens right before success.

Most of these habits are about our attitude, our perceptions. It can be challenging to silence our inner critic–but we must if we are to follow our muse and not someone else’s musings.

Creative Block has tips on unleashing the artists’ creativity. It is good for painters, and anyone who is in a creative field. Whether amateur or professional, fine artist, dancer or musician.
