It is that vulnerable thing…it keeps showing up!
I know it is there, but it is such a problem for me! A problem I never seem to be able to resolve.
I know vulnerability is the way to true authenticity. I have read and studied enough of this to understand why it works, and it does make sense. But oh my, to lay myself open, open for all to see and judge, I do not think I am strong enough. And then I often wonder…is this what my art is about. My feelings, my thoughts, my loves, my hates right out in the open, in the language of pictures, that most people cannot understand? Is it my way of exposing my vulnerabilities without having to reveal or defend my feelings to others? I feel like I am cheating vulnerability! I am completely open but in a visual language that few understand. Yes…I am cheating… vulnerable to myself but not open to others? Does this count as vulnerability?
