The first idea didn’t work, paint flowers

I was listening to a great podcast featuring Seth Godin and his latest book The Practice: Shipping Creative Work. It got me thinking yet again about yesterday’s post.

Yesterday I attempted to paint four lanterns. Lovely shades of blue and floral patterns. I didn’t have my usual quiet space but I needed practice. I speed painted the lanterns. They weren’t bad but weren’t good either. I knew I could paint better. I painted a flower.

Yes right on the other side of the folded up paper about to be trashed. I kept painting. Not the same lantern idea but a flower. And it was beautiful. This is the simple stuff I want to do more of.
