In one video, Gulfspr1te advises someone who's blocked to stop looking at other artist's work on the internet and just go and make art, make a mess! I immediately identified with that poster because I'm always watching videos and taking classes, and comparing myself to them. Ew. Yeah, I'm that person, the one everyone says I shouldn't be. *sigh*
Then this morning, another poster asked about finding her style as a beginner. I loved this answer! She was told to watch everyone, take all the classes, and I gave Christy a loud cheer and a round of applause! I'M a beginner. I will always be a beginner. How's that for justification? Good? Good!
All of this thinking boiled down to what I really enjoy doing and that's collage. So I made a very simple collage today and I like it. It's about my niece and her daughter, and the posts she makes on FB about her. I love that she loves her so much, and that the feeling is mutual. Yesterday would have been my sister's 75th birthday, hard to imagine her at that age, but I know she would love the little messages on FB as well. Happy Birthday, Joan.
