Introspection

Le Penseur, Auguste Rodin
What kind of artist are you?  What kind of artist do you want to be?

I'm going to be working with Eric Maisel, a creativity coach, for the next couple of months and those are questions he asked me yesterday.  What kind of artist are you?  What kind of artist do you want to be?

Up until now, I haven't given it much thought to that beyond wanting to be a good artist.  Good, of course, is a subjective term; what's good for one person might only be satisfactory for another.  "Good" is rather nebulous and unspecific.

What am I trying to achieve with my art?  What do I need from my art?

What kind of artist do I want to be?

I'm going to be thinking long and hard about this over the next few months.  I'm sure Eric will give me more questions to ponder and direction to help guide me.

What kind of artist do YOU want to be?
