Woke up this morning with an idea for a painting in my head. When I got to my sketchbook and tried it, I had a "What was I thinking?" moment. It was bad. Epic fail. Really glad I hadn't just run for the easel and tried it on the canvas there with the canvas I … Continue reading Turn the canvas
Everyone is always doing the best they can for what they know at that moment in time. That's the lesson I'm trying to remember today. I'm afraid that's all that I have to say. And it took me a long time to write. Please just remember that while you're out on your adventures. Cheers.

I should have listened to the little voice that said I should have gotten my … Continue reading Progress – October 22, 2018
