Seeking Validation and Earning Credibility as an Artist

Or, fairly, false validation from social media.

It is legitimate, and I detest stating this, that the far more followers you have, the additional possible I am to spend interest to you and your artwork for the reason that some others have offered you their thumbs up at some point. 

And your social feed is a lot more very likely to sustain my awareness if it emphasizes artwork as the center of your lifetime. Artwork, artwork, and additional art. That’s what I want to see from an artist who seeks reflection and vital awareness.

Nevertheless, we have to accept that there is a bogus perception of validation from social media. I consider Sara Schroeder felt that when she talked about wanting to be “more than an Instagram artist.” She grew her Instagram adhering to quickly and had to just take a phase (or two) back to ponder what she actually required from her artwork. Listen to my conversation with her in episode 119.

Though it feels very good to get individuals followers, likes, opinions, and shares on social media, at some position you have to wonder what they all mean. 

Who is accomplishing the subsequent, liking, commenting, and sharing? How are those interactions supporting you in the prolonged run? What transpires when you don’t get adequate likes or comments?

This begs the problem: Who are you searching for validation from?
