Interests
Lately I have been cranking out artwork. I challenged myself to do 100 landscapes, which has not only caused me to make landscapes, but also other art along the way. The negative side-effect of this though is that I am less patient with my work and less thoughtful about it.

I feel like I have a lot to say that I am not paying attention to. There is definitely a market for art that is just pleasing to look at, but for me a message or story brings true fulfillment.

Perhaps it is time to abandon this challenge, or even continue with it when inspiration is lacking, but not make it my main focus.

I want to feel pride for my work again, and express my inner self.

I think what happened was, I got caught up in instant gratification. pieces that maybe weren't blowing me away but were finished quickly. I did open up to more spontaneity than I have had in ages, but I lost my sense of self. If I can combine the two I will feel better about myself as an artist, and love my own work more.
