All my Work is CRAP!

Sometimes I feel like all my works are crap! Nothing looks good to me and I grind my teeth in frustration wishing i was as good as I see some other artist are. I think somewhere down the line all artist get this feeling. It comes and goes some times it’s the other way around “All my Work is GOLD” LOL not as ofter however, lol. I’m wondering how many other artist here have suddenly felt all the works are no damn good, why can’t I be a real artist, why can’t i paint the way I see it and the way I want it to look… other’s can, why can’t I? It’s not easy to be an artist at times. I believe those that go threw this feeling of “crappy art” do it for a better reason than one may think. We may not even be aware of the fact, but to look at your works and dislike them or feel unskilled will create the desire to prove yourself wrong! You will want to create an image or work that is beyond what you feel you were doing before. so in a way it’s a good thing. Sense most artist are friends with each other it is sometimes very hard to get an honest view on wiether or not your image is truly "good’ or “crap” because friends never want to insult friends or hurt their feelings in any lasting way. Therefore we often find ourselves second guessing a settled opinion. what are you views? Do you ever go threw the “My Work is Crap” stage?
