You can say yes to all your ideas. It’s art. There’s no wrong. Art takes time. I’ve had a wonderful time creating with students. All their ideas were amazing. That’s the voice we should always listen to. Did I really get to spend five glorious days teaching art? Oh yeah, I’ll be smiling for days! Truth be told, I was the student. You don’t need fancy tools. You just need YOU.
Every time we say we can’t, it’s an outside force. We were born with a notion of yes I can.
These three blooms went through many phases. It was good. It was ok. Now it’s great. All along as I mixed I could have gone down two paths: this is awful I’m throwing it away or I have no idea what I’m doing but I want to try this. All of a sudden you’re on fire and the next thing you know it’s a where did that come from. AWESOME.
Not knowing is the best place to be.
