Even the best artist make mistakes.
I’m sure fellow painters understand that. Some days you can paint non-stop and all of them turned out great.
Some days, nothing good seems to come out at all.
You managed one or two paintings but you don’t even like them.
But they aren’t that ‘bad’ so you’ll have to make do with them.
And then some days … everything seems to have gone to shit.
Seriously, nothing works. Everything turned out horrible and the more you try the worse the mistake.
You tore up the first piece of paper, then the second, and the next, and the next. Nothing is really going your way today (at least, for your paintings).
That’s what happened to me today.
This is the fourth try and to be perfectly honest, I don’t really like it. But it will have to do.
The point is I finished a painting today and that’s my goal.
Sometimes things just don’t go your way and you just have to tell yourself that it’s ok. I’ll do what I can now with what I have and I’ll call it a day. Start all over again tomorrow.
