Limiting Beliefs — What Are You Saying That You Can't Do?

Lindsay Burck

This is a story about limiting beliefs, inside of this very fortunate life that I've lived so far.

In your life, what are you saying that you can't do??

--

For many, many years of my life—29 and a half years to be exact—I had a story that I told myself over and over.

The story went something like, "I CAN'T DRAW!"

It got repeated over and over in my head, year after year. It got repeated when I tried to draw animals as a kid, and saw no possibility for them to look how I wanted them to look. It was repeated when I drew a self portrait in fifth grade, and had thoughts about being proud of my work—and then didn't see much encouragement or praise from other people.

It was repeated when my sister Stephanie took art class, and I wanted to be able to draw like her, but had given up years before that. It was repeated in high school art class where the teacher (God bless Mr. Sandoval) showed me how to alter the most SIMPLE of lines to make a figure look ever-so-slightly more believable—and still, the story persisted, "I can not draw."

Even in a painting class around age 21, the teacher said, "Burck, you're a visionary." It was impossible to see, as the paintings that I was doing at the time were sloppy, kinda abstract, and took incredible amounts of effort. I could see almost no reward for that effort. "I can not draw" persisted.

Who knows what changed. It definitely wasn't overnight. Maybe it was when a mentor showed me what can happen when possibilities are created.

Most of the time, the story called "I can't draw" is still very, very real. Other times, I look around and see evidence that this story isn't real. After typing all this out, it's getting kind of funny.

Mural Completed by Artists in Austin, Texas

Mural Artists Complete Austin Artwork on Fifth Street and Congress - Downtown

Here is a story of two artists and a completed mural:

Two artists met at HUE Mural Festival in Houston, in 2016. One artist lives in Houston, and the other lives in Mexico City. Both share an intense love for colors and light.

In their conversations over time, one artist, who is younger, said, "I am a Capricorn, and the way to my heart is to give me jobs to do." The other artist, who has many years of experience and is like a master artist, said, "I am a Scorpio, and the way to my heart is to help me with my art."

So, when the time came, and the artist from Mexico City planned to go to Texas again, he asked for help from her.

Upon arriving in Austin, the city of this painting project, they remembered how little of each other‘s languages they actually spoke. With haste, they began the work on helping each other learn English and Spanish, and the work of completing this mural project together. The inspiration for the piece started from a quote that is translated loosely as, "he who dwells within himself, and lives in his own light, attains peace."

Six days passed quickly, all completely full from sun up until way after sundown. The master artist sketched, planned, painted, made changes, talked to the press, painted, gave direction, and then climbed up and down ladders to paint some more. The young artist learned more painting techniques, gained experience in color-matching with speed, used her photography and photoshop skills to make digital sketches, learned how to paint with old, messed-up paintbrushes, and quickly found a way to direct a team of volunteers—comprised mostly of people who had never painted before.

By the end of the fifth day, the language lessons that the two artists gave each other every day started to really pay off. There were whole conversations, moments of complete understanding between them. Even onlookers commented on how the connection between them was so strong, that they could easily be brother and sister.

This whole experience was deeply moving for me, the young artist, to have the opportunity to paint with one of my favorite artists in the world.

Below is a photo of the finished piece! The title is "Soledad." There was not enough room to capture the full piece in one photo.

Footnote: The younger artist often refers to her paintings as “babies," especially when collaborating with other artists. This is because the painters can disagree as much as they want, but every decision is made "for the greatest benefit of the baby." In this case, the mural actually does have a baby for part of the subject.

Additional work by the artist can be found by searching online for "Cix Mugre art."
