I have to remind myself over and over… you are only a year and a half into this. I’m a sophomore in high school… I should expect to paint like I’m sixteen.
I have been running into a slew Of failed painting again. I’m not sure why exactly. For some reason I’m no where near as down on myself right now as I usually am when I’m struggling. Usually, after the third or fourth failed painting, I get really disappointed. Maybe it’s because it’s New Years. Maybe my anti depressants are working. Maybe both. Who knows. All I know is right now, I’m churning through paper pretty quickly, and I’m not getting any results I’m proud of. Because I want this blog to be an inspiration to beginners like me, I won’t shy away from airing my dirt laundry. So, here… a series of recent failed paintings—most of which I didn’t bother to finish. Because failure is a step toward success.
