I was trying to paint bright and splotchy, because I don’t usually do that. I want to do that, but somehow it just never is what I sit down to do. I envy those artists who with a very few brush strokes make something appear real. Or at least pretty. Because I’m not a few brushstrokes kind of person, but I’d like to be. Sort of like how people with straight hair want curly hair, and vice versa. We can be awesome like we are, but we’d rather be awesome like someone else.
So I’m practicing expanding my range, instead of just being envious. I can have both curly AND straight hair. Or paint in splotches, or lots of strokes. Tah-dah!
