Remember the first attempt?
As I have been writing, alot these days, I am drawing and painting flowers for the practice. Lately I have been showing up with doubt and negativity. Yes I planned to paint a Ranunculus,still do. I love the idea of this, layering with acrylic and filling in with watercolor. The hearts, these were inspired by actual leaves.
Which brings me to my practice!
Make art. make a mistake? keep going. Observe. repeat.
Somewhere in the mistake and keep going I stop. It’s the mistake that prevents me from the going, the making. Everyone that succeeded did so because they had losts of practice. In practice you build flow. In practice you make changes because you learn. I made slight changes. What a diference. I went from Ranunculus love to love lives here.
I love the shape, the layers of these blooms. It’s like you see one flower but there’s all these layers, all the mystery and magic of the flower. Or should I say a person. Love lives here feels right. You choose to let go of the doubt and hold loves hand. Next time you want to throw out your work, save it. In a few days, a weelk, look at it with a fresh pair of eyes and keep making art.
Oh I should paint these with a turqoise or aqua background! You see I can keep going.
