I keep taking painting courses online. And I enjoy taking them.
Does it help my painting? Absolutely not.
Do I WANT to paint like Wyanne Thompson? Yes!
Can I…..emphatically NO!
But I keep trying!
What’s that quote from Einstein…..Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
That’s me! Certifiably insane.
And the funny thing is…..I’m very uncomfortable while I’m trying. I mean almost physically uncomfortable.
I’m not in my happy place. Time doesn’t fly by, it drags.
I don’t know why I keep doing something that doesn’t bring me joy except I want to be good at this thing that I’m obviously NOT good at.
What’s up with that?
Why can’t I accept what I’m good at and be satisfied?
Anyway, I bought new liquid watercolors for this course. (Not that it was required; I just wanted to try them.)
And after making some pretty awful hot messes ……… I decided to just go to my happy place and play.
So I dripped and splatted and smooshed (technical painting terms, lol) and played and had some fun!
