tales of a recovering perfectionist
painting is very good for my inner perfectionist
first, paint gets everywhere
there is paint on my carpet, paint on some of my dishes, paint in my kitchen sink, paint in my bathroom sink, paint under my fingernails ..
i am learning to let it be
second, my paintings never turn out exactly how i expect or intend
for instance, this painting was supposed to show the kaleidoscope behind my eyes during some recent reiki sessions (it’s orange and pink and white – clearly not this) but when i added the white, it looked like there was a spider web on the painting so i painted over the whole thing
i am learning to enjoy the process
