My Top Ten Posts Of 2014 #6: The Art Of Hand Lettering

Some holiday hand lettering in my art studio.

My 6th most popular post of 2014 was "The Art Of Hand Lettering", another from my Create Art Every Day challenge.

I was a little hesitant to write about my adventures in hand lettering because there are many people out there who do it more beautifully than I do.  But let's face it, if I had to be an expert at something in order to blog about it, this blog would not exist.

As a recovering perfectionist it is imperative that I don't dwell on comparisons between myself and other artists, bloggers or anyone for that matter. Instead, if I start to feel envious of someone else's talents or achievements, I will just adopt that person as a role model.  I will look into their story and see what I can learn from it that applies to my own creative journey.  It is rare that I find anyone who was born instantly talented and successful.  In fact, I usually find that it's taken a lot of hard work, perseverance and courage for the people I admire to get to where they are in life.  This inspires me and motivates me to keep going.

As for hand lettering, I may never be an expert at it but I still enjoy it and I think that's a good enough reason to keep doing it and sharing it with you.
