If anybody out there in the blogosphere can help me overcome my artist's block, I would be most grateful; just asking for this help gives me a bit of the queasies. About 13 years ago I decided to take a break from the frustration of learning Hebrew and do something non-verbal. I found a great art teacher and starting to learn to draw. Even though she was rather terrifying, I attended her studio classes once a week for about three years, and got better.
But after one or two attempts to draw at home alone, I got so scared that I never did it again. Now the teacher has retired and I'm ready to examine this unreasonable fear of drawing alone. I feel sure I will disappear into my drawing and never emerge without someone there to pull me out. Do you know what I'm talking about?
