I Want To Be Free and How We Measure the Universe
acrylic on vintage dinosaur book page
Sometimes, I get frustrated.
I have the urge to paint something or write something, but it has not done enough percolating around inside of my brain to come out.
I want to be free in my creativity, I want to have the answers to these big questions... sometimes all I want are the questions, and I don't even have the right questions to get where I want to go.
I think when I forget that this is all a process, that's when I start to get blocked up. It's because I expect everything I do to be genius, to thrill me, to be "right." But the truth is, when you are taking chances and trying new things, and making it up as you go along, well, then sometimes it isn't going to work out.
You'll have false starts and ugly results and sometimes just 'meh'.
And that's ok. Keep trying. Keep picking up that paintbrush. Keep sitting down at that keyboard. Keep going. Don't give up.
