Painting has always been a healing process for me.
Yet I struggled whenever I came to covering up the white space and knowing what to paint.
It wasn’t until I snapped in-progress photos of my paintings that I realized I felt every painting has an ugly stage. And at that stage, I’d always get frustrated and feel like I couldn’t finish another painting.
That negative self talk completely took the fun out of painting. But once I realized it happened to me every time, I learned to turn off my inner critic.
Now I think it’s really lovely to create something you think looks too awkward or not completely perfect with eyes that are a little wonky or hair that’s extra big.
To me, it is the imperfections that make things the most beautiful and unique.
