Viewing others Works-Projects

>I have a perceived problem, whenever I see somebody else's projects, I'm afraid I might be overly influenced by it. Viewing solid pieces is not a problem, a curve is a curve and so is workmanship and techniques. It's in the enhancement whether it's a lid, carving, burning, painting and sculptured work. Segmented turning is also a problem with me; I just flat don't won't to see the other person's work. Beautiful designs in the feature areas are retained back in my mind someplace and if I design something similar then I don't think it is my own. Does anybody else have a similar hang up? I like to feel that Iím a creative person and donít lack for ideas. Please do not respond with the copy and plagiarize threads, to me those are wore out. GT
