Dedicated to…

Recently I started painting and I was finding it difficult to finish anything I started (not a new issue for me). I realize now that I couldn’t finish because I was obsessing over the thought that it “couldn’t be right” or “wasn’t going to look good so there’s no point in finishing it. It’s craZy anyway.”

In recognizing that this is a faulty and deceptive brain message, I’ve decided to post this picture. For so long I’ve colored inside the lines, afraid if I did what I wanted, people would think I’m crazy. A more accurate thought is, “it’s art. It’s whatever I want it to be. It’s not right or wrong, it’s just different.” This painting is dedicated to anyone who feels stuck coloring inside the lines, and anyone who already knows how much fun it can be to color outside them.

Amen.
