Since my newest adventures brings me straight back to art and being an artist (I avoided everything in this direction, since I just suffered so much in art school and felt my creativity being suffocated) I thought a lot about what it needs to be an artist. With a pair of fresh eyes, a bunch of confidence and knowing how I am, I have now a whole new point of view. Does it really matter if one is talented? I don't think that it is the most important part of being an artist. I think firsthand it needs dedication to do it daily, to express your feelings and emotions from deep inside you, being vulnerable and ready to show who you are. This needs confidence and courage. Every day. And there is one very effective thing that helps us get into this place, get in any place we ever desire. It is practice.
