Every so often I question my aspirations, and there are several questions to pose.
What are my strengths as a painter, and what are my weaknesses? Do these strengths and weaknesses matter to me and, if so, how much?
Do I have a style and would I recognize it as such? How important is my style to me?
What do I want my body of work to look like? Is there individuality in my paintings?
How do I feel when I'm painting? What about painting makes me happy/unhappy?
Is there a “groove” for painters, and, if so, I how do I get into it?
Do I like the way my paintings look?
What is the nature of being a painter?
What will improvement look like? Can I improve or will my work just evolve?
Do I have to be passionate about painting?
Am I satisfied? Am I complacent?
