Hey y'all. It's Amy. I just wanted to check in. I'm in the studio today and I'm working on this painting that I ... It was looking really great the other day, and then I totally overworked it and killed it. I'm working on it again today, and I just let it sit, and I came back in, and it still looked awful, but I just pretended that was the background and went back to work on it. I just wanted to encourage y'all that sometimes that happens. It's okay to make gross-looking stuff. You can move on from it, or let it sit for a while and go back over it. Working in acrylic makes that really easy, because it dries fast, and I can get back in here in a couple hours, or hit it with a heat gun and go back over it again, but I let it sit for a couple of days until I figured out what I wanted to do.
I just hope that's an encouragement to you. Don't quit. Just keep going. Let your stuff be ugly a little bit, and then just keep pushing to the pretty. Thanks. Bye.
