While creating this image, I choked up. I was totally afraid to make a mistake. I couldn't continue.
|Chief Bolugedong dreamed his grandfather told him to take care of the orphans in the tribe. Africa, Ethiopia, Omo region, Suri tribe.|
I'd been working on this piece for days. It's about the Suri Tribe Chief who dreamed his grandfather told him to care for the tribal orphans. When I dropped in the perfect photograph with a child from my files, I started to like the myth image.
Then, I froze, afraid to do anything else to it.
Fortunately, the next morning a little inner voice said, "Hey, Janis, it's not precious. It's just art. So finish it. Surprise yourself."
Do other artists choke up, afraid to make a mistake, afraid to continue?
