Michele and Bec recently recorded (for the Origin Art community) a walk-through of Bec’s art journal looking at how the inspiration and vision for her art has changed over the last 18 months.

They discuss the insights that can flow from this kind of reflection process, particularly getting clearer on what’s unique about how you see the world—AND, how you can be tempted to hold back parts of yourself for fear of being seen as too sensitive or too much. Basically, trying to make sure your art is ‘palatable’.

But the artistic process is about getting familiar with what we may think of as the ‘too much’ (or not enough) parts of ourselves, with all the vulnerability and self-doubt that stirs up. And knowing that it is beneath the surface of ‘palatable’ that we will find our most amazing art. It’s a messy path of ups and downs, but with patience and an ability to laugh at ourselves, we’ll get there!
