Standards, every artist has them and each set varies from artist to artist. Some might seem a little shallow from the casual observer (like never accepting less than a certain dollar value for your work) but to the artist who holds them they’re always vital. It’s these standards and our attachment to them that helps bring fort the weight of fear into our work. The thought that we can’t reach our standards of excellence, weights down every word, every brushstroke and every moment of an artist’s life.
