Sloppy paint. Try again.

Life is what you make it. And today life is well, unfair. I’ve been working so hard on my painting since the morning today. This was the first time I tried oil painting. Everything was going great until I started to work on the darn sky! Damn it! Now its all messed up, and here I am waiting for the paint to dry in hope that I’d  be able to fix the darn thing. But I’ve started my blog quiet wrong. To be honest life isn’t unfair, you are unfair to yourself. I worked hard on my painting and yes I screwed up but you can’t blame life for that, I mean that’s part of life, isn’t it? Messing things up, fixing others. I’m just being hard on myself, OK its screwed up but you know what, lets move on with your life and start another one. The biggest failure would be not to try again, which obviously isn’t an option for me. I’m gonna go at it tomorrow again stroking that brush across the canvas, using fingers, thumbs, whatever it takes, but making it work! After all as Ralph Waldo Emerson puts it “Every artist was first an amateur.” I think its safe to say, mistakes aren’t that much of a big deal, how you overcome those mistakes holds more of a greater importance. After all, that is exactly what makes you or breaks you.
