This is such an interesting concept. I am intrigued, and will begin to spend more time listening to my own work. I suppose the hardest part is setting aside all the emotion and opinions I have about my art. Kurth provided us with the perfect quote to keep us on the right path: "When you're in the studio painting, there are a lot of people in there with you - your teachers, friends, painters from history, critics...and one by one if you're really painting, they walk out. And if you're really painting YOU walk out." (Philip Guston)
While I ponder this further, I am listening to a gaggle of bossy queens, who tell me what their art needs is more queens. Oy vey! Off I go.
