Just a quick reminder, don't be making choices out of fear! Only you can know if you are or not, and I would implore you not to! If you're not willing to take a risk, you won't be able to get that reward! So go out there and try something! Risk that canvas you have sitting around! Try something new! Say hello to a new person! Be more honest with people than you have been yet. Part of being an artist is to be vunerable... we put ourselves and our work out there. So, don't be afraid to get hurt; it'll happen anyway. Go get that reward, make powerful work, and become a powerful person!
What the odds don't know is that this isn't a math test.
Don't "take care". Take risks!
