Funny that you should share this - I just read it and was trying to figure out how to share it myself. Absolutely great thoughts and insights that we all can learn from.
Great! Good for anyone
Thanks for sharing.... good advice!
Jeez... I really needed to read this! Thanks, Jane
Thanks for sharing, Jane. Good list to keep as a reminder of bumps on the road to making arts. Best approach --- have fun and play! When the painting doesn't work out, cut or tear it up and re-assemble as a collage. I learned this from Jane! It really changed my attitude towards painting. :-) tina m.
Hi Tina. When the painting "doesn't work out", it's just not finished yet. Keep painting. Tearing it up or even cropping it is sort of a cop out. You have way more to gain by continuing on it - even if you do so six months later - than by bailing.
I'd read the article before, but it had more impact on me this time around-- probably because I am at that place where I am ready to hear what she is saying. The funny result was that I wrote "Kill your babies" in my journal.... then had a quick re-think. What if someone took a peak at this journal? I quickly went back and wrote a mini explanation, with credit to Julie's blog post. lolThanks Jane,Nancy
