For the longest time, this was my profile picture on Facebook and here on my blog:
Mostly because I'm an introvert. (I did finally replace it with this one.)
I find myself in a lot of situations between the day job and my art activities that need me to not be. So I've learned to shove the introvert aside so I can do the things I love.
But deep down? I love the quiet and the stillness and getting lost in my own thoughts. I crave it in fact. I have to balance the extrovert Lynn with my true nature. I've loved to learn them both for the things that they give me.
But I've gotten to wondering - are most artists introverts? I see so many books and coaches and art business blogs focusing on how to get out of your studio and move among the more naturally extroverted kind.
What do you think? Do you think it goes with the territory?
