I can't even remember how many times I've read this book. I love it❤#artandfear #davidbayles #tedorland

✨🐰✨"to require perfection is to invite paralysis. The pattern is predictable: as you see error in what you have done, you steer your work toward what you imagine you can do perfectly. You cling ever more tightly to what you already know you can do — away from risk and exploration, and possibly further from the work of your heart. You find reasons to procrastinate, since to not work is to not make mistakes. Believing that artwork should be perfect, you gradually become convinced that you cannot make such work. (You are correct.) Sooner or later, since you cannot do what you are trying to do, you quit. And in one of those perverse little ironies of life, only the pattern itself achieves perfection — a perfect death spiral: you misdirect your work; you stall; you quit." #davidbayles #artandfear

"When you're lazy, your art is lazy. When you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in pockets. But when you commit, it comes on like blazes." #davidbayles | I feel a blaze brewing ⚡️💥🔥

"When you hold back, it holds back; when you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in its pockets. But when you commit, it comes on like blazes." Commit it is!! #ArtandFear #davidbayles #artistslife

current desk situation #wip The book to the left #artandfear was really influential in understanding a healthy psychology surrounding the creative process. I first read it a couple years ago and have thumbed through it many times since. My biggest takeaway is that the primary function of each individual piece of art we make is to prepare us for the next piece of art we make. In other words, the body of work we create over our lifetime represents a history of our practice...no single piece stands alone. So stop trying to make epic art, and just focus on making YOUR art, good or bad #staytruetoyou #keepitmovin #takeiteasy Thanks @marthatraer for recommending this gem! #artandfearbook #davidbayles #tedorland #philosophy #art #doyou

프랭크 로이드 라이트는 젊은 건축가들에게 초창기에 설계한 건물들에 담쟁이를 심으라고 조언했다. 시간이 지남에 따라 담쟁이가 자라 "젊은 시절의 경솔"을 덮어 버리도록 말이다. #artfear #davidbayles

I felt sad to get to the end of the book. I've experienced that before, but this is a first, I think, for non-fiction! To read more follow the link to my blog on my profile page. #davidbayles #tedorland #art&;fear

Borrowing "Art and Fear" by David Bayles and Ted Orlando from a friend. Two things that are sticking out to me currently... 1. "Operating Manual for Not Quitting: Make friends with others who make art, and share your in-progress work with each other frequently." 2. "The lessons you are meant to learn are in your work. To see them, you need only look at your work clearly, without judgment, without need or fear, without wishes or hopes. Without emotional expectations. Ask your work what it needs, not what you need. Then set aside your fears and listen, the way a good parent listens to a child." #art #books #artbook #artandfear #davidbayles #tedorlando #survivalguide #puttingthingsinperspective #followforfollow #follow4followback

"In the end it all comes down to this: you have a choice (or more accurately a rolling tangle of choices) between giving your work your best shot and risking that it will not make you happy, or not giving it your best shot — and thereby guaranteeing that it will not make you happy. It becomes a choice between certainty and uncertainty. And curiously, uncertainty is the comforting choice."

I finally finished a book on contracts for those in the art field. I've had this book for a while and I finally read and finished and it was a great book... I began to think to myself maybe I should post books I've read on art so that it could be of assistance to other artists. #abookaboutcontracts#sarahconleyodenkirk#startingyourcareerasanartist#angiewojak#stacymiller#artandfear#davidbayles#tedorland#thesuccessfulartistcareerguide#margaretpeot#knowledgeispower#books#foodforthought#artlife

Some deep Friday thoughts. #artandfear #davidbayles #tedorland




" #AngelaDuckworth,
author of Grit:
The Power of Passion
and Perseverance:

'"After you’ve discovered and developed interest in a particular area, you must devote yourself
to the sort of focused,
full-hearted,
challenge-exceeding-skill practice that leads to mastery.
You must zero in
on your weaknesses,
and you must do so
over and over
again, for hours a day,
week after month after year.'

"We all love shortcuts.
The allure of getting more 
by doing less 
is seductive.
But are there times
when doing more
equals more?
Absolutely.

"The classic illustration comes from @DavidBayles and
#TedOrland ’s @ArtandFear 
where a ceramics teacher
divided his class into two groups.

"The first was told
they’d be graded on quality.
The other, quantity.
To get an A,
the quantity group
was required
to produce
fifty pounds
of clay pots.
Not exactly
an artistically inspired
assignment.
And yet,
when grading time came, 'a curious fact emerged:
the works of highest quality 
were all produced by the group being graded for quantity.'

"What accounted for this
reversal of expectations?

"Easy:
while the quality group held back — laboring under perfectionism — the quantity group got busy.
They practiced.
And that’s good news.

"If greatness came down to passion — or worse, talent —
then it’d be reserved
for only a select few.

"Practice means
greatness is doable …
one tiny step after another."



-- Aaron Orendorff, “‘Follow your passion’
is wrong, here are
7 habits you need instead.”




“The function of the overwhelming majority of your artwork is simply to teach you how to make the small fraction of your artwork that soars. One of the basic and difficult lessons every artist must learn is that even the failed pieces are essential. X-rays of famous paintings reveal that even master artists sometimes made basic mid-course corrections (or deleted really dumb mistakes) by overpainting the still-wet canvas. The point is that you learn how to make your work by making your work, and a great many of the pieces you make along the way will never stand out as finished art. The best you can do is make art you care about — and lots of it!” - David Bayles & Ted Orland, Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking ...
This, right here. It's so easy to be crippled by perfectionism, by the desire to get our work right on the first try. We fight this non-stop, not only in our business endeavors but in our personal creative pursuits as well. But there is value in the sketches, scratches and stream-of-consciousness scribbles. We learn to do our work by doing the work. ....
How do you break out of the rut of perfectionism? .
