When evening comes II, Gouache, 10×10cm, Astrid Volquardsen, 2020
A nice reader told me the other day how much she struggles with some of her pictures. That’s where »the key« to the whole, if not to life itself, lies.
In English we say, »Be comfortable in being uncomfortable.«
Feeling comfortable in the creative process while at the same time uncomfortable in discovering unknown territory. It is important to endure this discomfort, and (if possible) to feel joy in discovering new techniques, new ways of expressing oneself.
