Are You Scared of That Blank Canvas? 😳

Updated: Apr 10



For some, it represents possibilities.

 

For others, impossibilities.

 

If you're starting a new painting, business, or career, the thought of stepping into the unknown can feel like staring at a blank canvas.

 

As kids, we saw ANY blank surface (wall, table, or floor) as an opportunity to play and create.

 

But, as adults, we get really anxious at the thought of expressing our ART in public.

 

If this sounds like you, no need to worry.

 

Even the great artists like Van Gogh struggled with this too..."You don't know how paralysing that stare of a blank canvas is."




So, How Do You Overcome It?

Stop trying to be perfect!

Yep, that’s the nugget - When you put pressure on making something “beautiful” or “right”

It's easy to crumble under the weight of your own expectations.

But, the blank canvas doesn't need perfection.

It needs your courage!

Sure, creating something new can be scary, but nothing is worse than not trying.

"Whatever you do, whoever you are, you have the ability to make art in your life." - Damien Hirst

It's time to make your messy masterpiece, one brushstroke at a time.


P.s. If you still have any doubt, to quote Van Gogh one last time “Just slap anything on when you see a blank canvas staring you in the face like some imbecile.
