|"Bailey" by Julia Salt, Mixed Media Artist|
You may remember my young friend Julia from here. We have struck up a very enjoyable email correspondence.
Julia received a set of Winsor and Newton watercolors for Christmas but was afraid to wreck or waste them. I responded that she may enjoy USING them more than just looking at them.
Here is her response:
"I think one of my biggest issues was that I was worried that I would use all my expensive paints on something that didn't matter, something that wasn't important.(What am I doubting myself?!?) I desided my art doesn't HAVE to be important, it doesn't need to have a huge message, say "HEY OVER HERE!" it can just kinda sneak up behind you and tap you on the shoulder."
What do you think of that? Good advice, I'd say.
