I fear this all the time. I have great ideas, sometimes I even put them on paper as I work them out in my head, but when I go to create them I can't get it right, and I can't figure out how to make it right. Does this happen to you?
I have wasted a lot of material on my fear. I work on an item trying to figure out how to make it better, and it never happens. When I show my family the idea they don't understand why I think something is wrong. Even if I explain it, they still don't see the problem. Well at least my mom, sister, and daughter, have wonderful jewelry collections with all the items I have rejected.
Fear is something we have to overcome ourselves. Their are lots of books on the subject, as well as web sites and blog posts, but when it comes down to it we have to let go of the fear and believe in our abilities, and our creations!
What is an artistic fear you have? Have you overcome it? If so how?
