In the past few months, I've learned that art is as much about confidence and the willingness to take a risk as it is about paint, ink and paper...
The willingness to take a risk is what
this piece represents to me.
|1. Sprayed with Dylusion and Adirondacks Ink and then misted so the colors would blend in my Dylusion Journal.|
5. After all the pieces were taped to the back of the frame with double stick tape, this thought came into my head, "What If, I screw this piece up trying to do the lettering?" In the past this thought could have paralyzed me.
Tonight I did something different. I practiced the lettering on another piece of paper. Then I picked up the pen and wrote the words without giving too much more thought to it. If I had thought about it, my unwelcome friend, fear, would have reared it's ugly head and things might not have gone so well.
What I think affects the outcome. This time I just thought... Do it and I did.
