I am running out of time to finish this canvas for my little pop up art show next week (Thursday 7-10pm at Ian Ross Gallery in SF). And this morning I saw a painting that was almost done, but it wasn't quite right. It was a canvas filled with marks (beautiful marks!)that belonged to someone else.
There are so many great ideas out there. Beautiful and sparkly. But oftentimes they belong to other people.
With a fresh cup of coffee in one hand and my brush in the other, I painted it white, knowing that if I can make the marks that I MUST (not just the ones that I CAN), something original and beautiful and unique awaits, because it comes from me. And there is only one me, and one you, in all of time.
That — THAT! — is the gift that each of us can give. No matter if you arrange flowers or run a business or lead a team. Be inspired by the world, but listen to your own voice, that calling deep within... With paint on my hands (and nose and jeans), Happy Thursday from the studio.
