Pictures will tell you…

Well they say pictures are worth a thousand words, and they also tell you to take a picture of art you have created and sometimes you can see something in it that you couldn’t see while your nose is buried in the art. So I took pictures. I looked at them on my phone and decided we need something bigger to look at them on and I need more opinions than just mine well… I don’t actually need more opinions but I would like more opinions. So I’m throwing this out there to you…this is where I was after meditation and journaling this morning. This is what came out. Raw, emotional, me. At least today. At least right now.

The Good, The bad, and The ….

I know the rule about not speaking bad about our own work… ‘we are our own worst critics’ … but Sometimes you can work on something ….and work on it ….and work on it ….and it just doesn’t come out right. Other times you can just throw paint down on paper and it happens right the first time. What’s up with that? Is it just to make us question our ability ….or is it an exercise in perseverance?
