Jayna,
        I found a lot of simple truth in "Art and Fear".
We already take a bit of the book's advice. Several of us
get together every Tuesday evening at one of the High Schools
to paint. It helps to surround yourself with a support group.
It is also a great idea to set aside the time to paint or some
nights just refill your palette and talk. Tuesday becomes a
special "sacred" time for me.
