This is a series I created back in November that I never blogged about.
Like with any series, there are some I like a lot better than others, but I find that my personal favorites are not always what others are drawn to, so I'm sharing the whole lot.
When I made them, I was feeling quite discouraged because they are so heavily influenced by the work I did in two different on-line classes.
There was a lot of hand-wringing and despair over being derivative, not having a voice, being stuck in a rut, and having no original ideas.
It's taken me a good two months to accept that I am just making excuses. No amount of sitting back and whining is going to magically bring forth a fresh, never-before-seen approach to art.
The only way out is through.
Roll the paint
Pull the print.
Immerse yourself in the process.
Worry less about results.
Focus more on joyful experience.
When something works, do it again.
When it doesn't, cover it up.
When you're done, stick the whole batch in the mail and start again.
Do the work.
Nothing will change if you don't show up.
