~~I always find it fascinating to see paintings in half-finished stages and yet for some reason I have a hard time sharing my unfinished work. When I see it on the screen I start to pick on all the things I want to work on and change instead of just seeing the process.
I was reading through the book "Moving On" The art of Steve Hanks and he includes some unfinished works. There's also a quote that explains exactly how I feel:
"Often times I wish the viewer could have experienced the process; they only experience the finished product. It's as if they just see the end of the movie or novel while I was able to experience the whole thing. Seeing a painting half-finished can be very powerful. You get an idea of where it came from and you can imagine how it will turn out. I've never been one for sharing sketches of unfinished work. It's always been my nature to want to complete everything."
~~It's Friday and the first day of Summer break for us. Yay! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed.
