Have you ever made art that no one will see? I mean, people write in journals and things, but I mean, taking a pencil or paints or a marker and just goofing around with NO intention of showing it to anybody.
Do you think you would draw differently? Would you pick a different subject?
Give it a try. Make art, that nobody is going to see but you. See what happens. It's like having a conversation with yourself, revealing what's on your mind. When you are done, you can toss it, or shred it, or put it away somewhere safe.
Because your art belongs to you first, you know.
