What's In A Name?

Welcome to my ongoing identity crisis. You may have noticed that I changed the banner above from "Nemcosky Art" to read "Ann's Art Journal". Yep, that was me. You see, when I began this blog back in August it was intended for both me and dear hubby as a place to document our art. This was the reasoning behind choosing a name that would work for us both. But this has really been my blog from the start, so I decided to change the banner title to reflect that. I am encouraging dear hubby to set up his own blog for the sake of his wonderful art. Which goes back to the name thing. I'm terrible at picking titles, choosing names, and basically just making any kind of decision. Because of that it is not unlikely that I will change the name yet again when I'm feeling insecure about just what the heck it is I'm doing anyway. I still don't even know what I want to be when I grow up. Now how bad is that?

I really like your new banner!
You shouldn't feel insecure. Your work is very good and it's all part of the journey! :)

I love this landscape! If you were bad at making any kind of decision you would never even finish a drawing because you constantly have to decide: what color to use, where exactly to put a line, where to shade,... So I don't believe that is true. And in my opinion it is completely ok to feel insecure and to not know what one wants to be. I do, too. There is always so much more to be, do and have that there is an ongoing search for identity. I look at it as a very positive thing, because that means, I reflect on my life and I am trying to find out what it is among the myriad choices that I want.
