Some more on what it takes
Understanding what needs to happen in order for me to be satisfied with a painting is not enough. I’ve got to do it and do it often. I “believe” the more you work the better you get.
So in the spirit of creating rules, here is my list of most important rules.
- Paint or draw every day
- Complete at least one painting every week
- Start a new painting every week
- Acknowledge how fortunate I am.
I really wish that this was longer and more profound, and I could turn it into a best selling book, but life turns out to be simple.
I’ve noticed that when I am not painting, I worry about everything. When I am painting, I’m pretty happy. Bobby McFerrin had a point.
