3. After looking at my body of work, I notice that I consider a piece done when the due date arrives and I have to turn it in, not when the piece is actually finished. This was pretty big with my first semester project last year. I spent a large amount of time on it, but when I had to turn it in, I did not consider it finished, but I had to let it go.
4. Others notice the realism I strive for in my drawings, and I find that I am not always striving for realism, and I find it irritating that my family’s expectations of art is that the piece is a realistic depiction.
5. After looking at my work, it seems as if I might need more experience with different concepts because many of my pieces have similar flaws, but I do not know what they are. I also think my portfolio could use some expansion into new mediums.
6. One of the biggest obstacles that usually stands in the way of my artmaking is motivation and time. I plan to deal with this by blocking out time for me to work, which will hopefully lead me to work more. However, I have far less time this year to work, so this may continue to be a problem.
