Question?

Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN

Have you ever questioned yourself about everything? All the decisions you’ve ever made? I do everyday. When I wake up in the morning and go to a job that is not satisfying, I only do it to pay the bills. I love my family and my husband and I don’t question that. I just question other things like why haven’t I taken more risks? What am I so afraid of? If I fail, oh well. I question if I’m good enough. Every time I send a portfolio to a gallery I question if I’m good enough to show my work. Some people say I take great photographs, others tell me they’ve seen it before and it’s nothing new. Why do we put ourselves through this? Why do we drive ourselves crazy trying to prove to people that we are artists? When all we (me) should be concerned with is if we like our own work, then what does it matter what other people, critics or whomever like it or not. However, when no one is buying or even looking at your work, then what’s the point of doing it? Do all artists go through this?
