Every painting, every drawing brings me to two conflicting emotions. The first is pride in what I have finished. The second and generally the stronger of the two is a sense of absolute failure in that piece. Its so odd to have such feelings occur together. This statement always puts things into perspective for me:

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide whether it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they’re deciding, make even more art.” – Andy Warhol
