Today we had a critique in my painting class and this one chick called my brushwork "distracting" and said she didn't like it because it made her feel anxious. And it seemed people avoided talking about my painting, too; it was only a still life I don't understand how anyone could be so frightened. Then they went on saying how this one has a good focal point, and this one had such nice lines, but they didn't say anything nice about mine. I went back to my room and I cried. Am I too sensitive?
no, you’re not too sensitive, it’s totally okay!!! tbh how your painting makes them feel is their problem, not yours—if anything though, the fact that your painting could elicit such emotion while just being a still life is something that’s actually really admirable and interesting, being able to capture emotion in brushstrokes is like….the opposite of a bad thing honestly, and good paintings don’t necessarily have to make a person feel good, just like good books don’t necessarily have to have happy endings, ya feel?? ;u; don’t worry!!!
Went to Floresta - the cute animal donuts place in Koenji - while working on one of our upcoming short video documentaries. The documentary is about fashion, but when in Koenji, animal donuts are a must. :-)
