Girls with Curls
Sporadically, someone will ask if I ever make videos, so I thought I would try out a little test. Since I painted a couple self-portraits with curls and bows, I got out my ipod and filmed looking into the mirror, then showing you my painting in progress. My thought was that I would take a couple of videos, and you could see the whole process. However, I was getting frustrated with my first attempt, and wiped out the painting. But, here's a 25 second video.
The point is...never take yourself too seriously, and never be afraid to wipe out a painting. Painting is a life-long journey of discovery. Learn from mistakes, and keep the old adage, "When at first you don't succeed....try, try again", in mind. In my experience, add a few more "tries" to that quote. Happy Painting!
