There is one moment, in the first few seconds, when you look at a piece of art and know that you love it. It’s the moment when, if you’re an artist yourself, you look at it and feel a rush of uplifting inspiration… and total soul-crushing jealousy all at the same time. It’s when you walk away thinking, “Damn, I wish I thought of that."
~ The Jealous Curator, est. 2009
It's rather uplifting to hear those words from another artist. I have those feelings frequently.Those jealpus feelings just shut me down, making me feel inadequate and not worthy to pick up a brush.
