When it comes to art, I do pretty.
I freely admit I have control issues. Try as I might, I find it extremely hard to be...messy...in my art. I want to be. I try to be. I fail. :(
I went into the studio to do Mystele's lovely lesson on "art with abandon" with high hopes, however. This time, this time, I was going to do it. Unleash the messy beast inside of me. Yeah! Let's hear it for coloring outside the lines!
But...but...it's pretty. And neat. And controlled. Again.
So, I went back into the studio this afternoon determined to make a mess of things. On paper. On purpose.
And I wasn't coming out until it was done. (Or until dinner. Whichever came first.)
I pushed myself. I really did. And I think I made a little progress. It's still too neat; I was still too controlled about the process. But I'm learning. And that, after all, is what these classes are all about.
In my book, anytime I step outside my comfort zone to try something new, it's a win.
Thanks, Mystele. :)
