It is hard to be a perfectionist. It stops us from creating and from becoming all that we can be. Things can always be improved but I have found that when I start to get that feeling of I know there is just one more thing I should do to make this better than the best thing I can do is stop. Often after stepping away for even a short time, I realize the painting is good enough just as it is. Other times I realize just a little more work will make it just a little better. And many times I ask for help from someone who knows more than I do. This painting looks very different in person than it does on the screen. So I think I will take some time, leave it alone, and see what happens when I look at it again. It's not perfect. It's probably not finished. But I like it and most of the time that is enough. It feels good when you realize that your painting does not have to be perfect and neither do you.
When you share your dreams and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin.
