The Kennedy School in Portland, Oregon has some awesome decor. I went to their restaurant for dinner with the vague intention to draw something. I had no idea it would be so gorgeous there! I could probably spend a week drawing all over this place and still not be finished.
While I was doing this a woman from another table came up to see. She asked if I was a professional artist. Took some mental “hnngh–argh–fjdak–Idjst–” Â before I could smile and say “Working on it.” Â Despite the fact that people have already started paying me to make art for them, this is a difficult mental shift to make. There are all those internal disclaimers of ‘well I’m not that good yet” and ‘I don’t make very much at it’ and ‘I wish my style were more like _______’ and so on. I’m working on that, too.
