Cerulean SHE

I think the fear of creating bad stuff, bad art, bad images is the worst of all fears for a creative person, professional or amateur.

While I have always been very passionate about making original art, of late I have realized that I have always been scared to death about making bad stuff.

Back in 2010, probably that fear took over my life when I tried to paint this huge painting of my wife as a subject. I failed miserably because I was not technically capable to bring my vision onto the canvas. Over the years I kept going back to that painting and I kept giving up each time…

That fear crept up into my photography as well. After leaving my job in 2015, I was concentrating so much on my business that I seldom made images that I can be proud of. Business was good. Creation, not so much…

But then 2017 happened. In 2017, I got to be part of this photography community called PEP and my ‘creator’ life transformed quite a bit after that. That was probably a major milestone in my photography life and of late the confidence has been creeping into my art as well. More on PEP community some other time…

For now, here I am making this reasonably difficult(for me) painting of my wife, again, but with proper planning and some learning…
