How many times have you heard of a teacher (or someone) telling someone famous (obviously way before they were famous) that they weren't good at this thing or that thing (the thing they are actually famous for)?  What I think is amazing is not that they are so incredible at whatever their talent is, but rather that they didn't let this teacher or others around them discourage them from doing what they liked to do.  My daughter is taking a painting class in school.  For one of her assignments, she has to paint "entanglement".  She gets to choose anything picture that represents entanglement to her.  She decided to paint a snake all wrapped around itself.  Then she told me the teacher said that she "should have taken a drawing class before this class."  Basically, the teacher cut down her sketch that she was going to paint.  I asked what she thought of her picture and she said it was way worse than some of the others in the class.  That many of them draw so well that their pictures looked totally real.  I told her not to worry about it.  Art is NEVER incorrect.  There may be techniques that are being learned but as far as whats good or not good is COMPLETELY subjective.  Some of the coolest art styles I have seen are very minimalistic in nature with very few details.  What I'm hoping she gets out of this is a way to let herself be self-expressive without the fear of failure.  Whenever we do ANYTHING we need to be able to operate without the fear of failure.  This fear just binds you up and bogs you down because you are concentrating on these other things that mean nothing.  So if anyone tells you you can't do it, or what you do isn't good, or they don't think it's worth it....blow that shit off!!!  You do your thing and completely enjoy the act of doing it.... for you.  Don't anyone rain on your parade!! :)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
