creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes...


Thought I would share another painting that I have done this week...but this one is not perfect! Unfortunately I dropped an ink pad on the face and no matter how hard I tried to blend it in the paper started to bubble up so have just left it!! but when I think about it my face and hands are always covered with inks and paint as I dont think anyone can be clean if they like doing art!! Have a good weekend everyone..its rainy bad weather here but I am going to get everyone wrapped up in coats and brave it!!

my good friend sarah fishburn once told me that mistakes are opportunities for embellishment! I live by that and the thought that if it was perfect, it would be machine made and imperfection is what makes fine art fine, you piece is just wonderful!

Great page and I had to look really, really hard to find the mark! Love the sentiment x

I too cannot see the ink mark! We are all obviously blind to your mistakes :o)

You have been busy this week art wise. The quote you have written is so very true, one has to be self forgiving, but remembering that at the time is a different matter!

Have a great weekend despite the Autumn weather.

Very nice painting, I can't even tell that you dropped something on it.
