Today, I promised myself that if I got my Chapped Chick orders out that I could paint. So, I finished my personalized candy bar wrappers for a wedding and made a batch of chapstik and personalized the labels for a wholesale customer, UPsd them, and then... I finished up some sewing projects, like this pillow..... and then I painted. But it was disappointing, really, didn't turn out anything like I hoped but I keep reminding myself that every piece does not have to be great art (honestly, so far, none has really turned out to be great art) - that it is great practice, that I will never really finish, ka-poot, be done with painting the last perfect painting. Sometimes I have the same impatience with people. I want them to be finished works of art. Not art in progress. I'm reminded that we are all just practicing at being our best selves. ... truly, i'm remedial art in progress, still practicing.
