"Judging your early artistic efforts is artist abuse."~Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way Hmmm.
Interesting. I always thought it was a good idea to go back and look at where our work began to shift, but since reading this quote I'm not so sure.
Do we tend to judge the work rather than study and learn from it? Do we end up saying to our artist-self "You idiot, What were you thinking when you painted that?"
Chime in here. I would really like to know what other creatives think about this.
