I’m declaring today Art Day.
While it’s tempting to lock myself in my studio, and prime, glaze, and swirl paint to my heart’s content, I’ve decided to focus on art appreciation.
The Art Corner is the only section of this blog I’ve yet to bring to life, and I suppose today is as good a day as any.
In fact, it’s that sentiment I want to focus on for this first entry.
Today is as good a day as any.
I could copy and paste a dozen or so motivational quotes, all displayed in a lovely cursive font. We’ve seen ’em. We love ’em.
But let me just say that embracing the struggle of the creative process is easier said than done.
When I paint or write I find myself getting impatient. I get embarrassed by my work, even when I know it’s far from finished.
How is this fair?
Good things take time, Snap. Don’t forget that.
So here’s to giving ourselves a break. Let’s raise a glass of bitter, icy, exquisite cold brew, and remember that it’s okay if today is just another rough draft.
