Realism is my default

I've got to push myself to get used to simplicity.

"It is a necessary conflict." I've been telling myself that lately. Using my innate logical side to trump my worries. Decisions are hard to make when your bound to everyone around you. In pain and in strength. Everything with Courage.

There's always a point when your painting and it all looks terrible. Stroke after stroke it will look worse and worse. But I've found that when I do not stop, when I do not give up on what I imagine, it happens. There's that awesome moment when things turn out greater than you ever expected and you've learned something new.

A neat little exercise is to never regret the strokes you make with the pen, brush, or pencil.

Just keep going with it. Throw the eraser away.

Cause in reality, time is always....ALWAYS moving forward.

So just go with it, even if it becomes a mess.

Sometimes the real joy is in the journey, not what you are trying to achieve in the end.

hmmm, now that sounds fun. I haven't done that in a while. Being all about getting some were with my art. But what I actually love most is the spontaneity of just throwing down strokes and seeing what becomes of it.
