Another Commission Complete

I had a total blast with this painting! Sometimes you feel like nothing is working when you are drawing or painting and sometimes things just flow nicely and the process is effortless. This painting just flowed for me. As I learn and grow as an artist, I am realizing that letting go is the key. Don't try and be a perfectionist or afraid to try new things. There is nothing that can't be fixed or changed in mixed media. That is why I love this medium so much. It is so freeing!!!!

For those of you who are artists and are struggling with perfectionism in your work. There are two quotes that I would like to share with you today...

"I am still learning that there are no mistakes, only discoveries..." - Fernando Araujo

and my personal favorite...

"There is no must in art because art is free..." - Wassily Kandinsky
