studio friday [practice makes perfect}
hmmm.....practice makes perfect. oh if only
i let this be true. wow this is a really hard
thing for me. you see, i am one of those people
who watch from afar and only wish and dream
that my life was like someone else's, my art
was as good as others, i was a thin as such
and such. so i tend to sabotage myself before
i even get started. i really do!
but i am learning. i laugh at myself alot. take
for instance to self portrait above. i am constantly
using my digital to get a good shot of myself. i
have probably taken over 100 pics of me! i have
saved 5! oh do i laugh at those pictures. oh the
faces i make. do i really look like that? is that
how people see me? ughhh. but i keep pluggin
my art....boy, i really am searching for my style.
i have one. but i just have to start puttin g it
on canvas. i have tons of sketches, doodles, ideas
written out. but i am so afraid to produce. you can
see some of my attempts and next to them are my
mati prints i just got in the mail! i can't wait to get
them framed and hung. check out her stuff here....
they are even better in person! and on my big envelope
she drew one of her flowers with MY company name -
oh so sweet! so i guess what i am saying is - one day
if i practice - maybe i will be the artist that mati is.
[*oops the artist that kelly will be!]
practice makes perfect [at least that's what mama used to say]
