Without new physical art to show regularly, you might doubt you’re a “real” artist.

Finishing and sharing work is important, but it’s merely the final furlong of a long, multi-stranded process.

Each artwork you create is the sum of all you’ve thought, breathed and experienced in your life up to now.

Without your past, you couldn’t make the art you make today.

So next time you’re down on yourself for not creating enough, remember all the work unseen – that extraordinary ocean of sights, sounds and sensations you’ve meticulously gathered up and shaped into something uniquely beautiful.

Share your thoughts on the work unseen in your creative life.
