Tuva Stephens 's comment on Confidence Part 2

I nurture my confidence by writing in a journal. I set yearly goals of which competitions to enter and my successes. I try to build on each success and plan what's next. I enjoy critiquing sessions with a masterful artist/teacher and a group of professional artists in which we show new work.

Recently we were asked to bring in a work we considered a failure. The work I brought in won Best of Show in the next show in which I entered. My husband is also a great critic and proves to be helpful in building my confidence when I doubt the direction of my work.
