Try and Try Again
That’s the story of my art life: try this, try that, see what works and what doesn’t. Some days can seem like complete failure, but they are never a waste of time. Failure is a great way to make course corrections.
I think the thing that is changing for me is the scale of my risk taking. I like working small. It allows me the chance to have successes more often. I’ve lost my taste for big failures. I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Call it wisdom earned through life experience.
I have worked big. Oh, have I ever. I just think I have enough big paintings around me now. Big, beautiful paintings, I might add. But for now, small is beautiful.
