DON’T GIVE UP! (The world needs what you have to give.)
This is a concept that is so difficult to grasp, but such a basic truth. Every artist I’ve known who is comfortable with her or his work (in any genre) has come to understand the simple–“keep working until you get it” practice. From photographers who would shoot rolls with the hope of a good shot, to drawing, writing, painting teachers who urge–work every day, and something will emerge! Thanks Carol!
Those who don’t grasp it simply quit in frustration. It’s made even more difficult to grasp because each of us has different levels of “getting it.”
Good evening Carole. Boy you do everything….I am impressed. I browsed you website for ages and have only touched the surface I am sure. This is the first time that I emailed you after really finding out you are located in Kitchener. I am Karin Lynn Cumming from Oakville and you are a contact on Flickr. We will have to get together sometime in the early Spring (after the challenging winter driving) I look forward to cultivating a friendship. …..firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.karinlynncumming.com
Karin Lynn, I am a curious woman!
What a great reminder! It certainly applies to the things we create “outside” ourselves, but I began to think how much it applied to the creation of our “inside” self as well. It’s good to remember, “You’re not done yet.” Thanks for bringing your curiosity about life to blogging so we all get to benefit!
