Your Style or Their Style?

As an artist there are so many styles of artwork that I absolutely love and when I began building a portfolio, I thought I would love to pursue so many different directions in art and pattern design.  Watercolor, detailed florals? Line drawn, precise and textured? Bold, modern florals?

Personal style and Artist thought patterns

But when I accepted that all my favorite styles to enjoy are not all MY style to create, it opened up a feeling of freedom in my process.  I can appreciate and admire other styles but still narrow my focus specifically on the work that resonates best with my own style. 

This is one thought pattern shift I have made that has made a big difference in the way I approach my work. 

This got me thinking about other thought patterns I’ve learned about, so I’ve put together a mini challenge for you!  (I promise it won’t require a huge time investment!)  Five days of small shifts you can make in your thought patterns as an artist.

I will drop them in your inbox – one thought a day for five days!  I’ll see you there!
