'Do you remember when we were 7? and we just painted to paint? not to please anyone else.. but just yourself.. not overthink .. Just PAINT. As we grow older we start to compare ourselves to other people.. and their art. We judge ourselves.. our art and wonder if we are good enough. Art isn't about thinking how good we are.. it's about finding ourselves and enjoying our passion. It's painting what's in our heart and bring soul and fire to what we are creating.'
Its not a direct quote from her, but thats not the point - its that we need to set ourselves free of what everyone else thinks about our art, and just enjoy the process. Well for the most part thats what I got out of it anyway. My next canvas will probably reflect that a lot more anyway. I am absolutely loving this new freedom, and using many different techniques etc that I've picked up along the way. Hope you do too.
