When you make art do you love what you produce immediately?
I must say sometimes, I am satisfied with it, sometimes
I hate it, sometimes I am happy with imperfection.

I think that some of the great painters of years ago
struggled with the same worries about
there art, as we do.  I am sure Picasso must
have produced a few stinkers in his time.  But
I guess what we all have to remember
is what we see as an imperfection\
others see as perfection.


  1. It's tricky. I like my paintings to look hand painted, not computer done, but I also like them precise and exactly the way I pictured them in my mind. Some pictures I have done over and over 6 or 7 times before I get it 'acceptable,' but other days it takes one try and the painting is perfect!

    Nothing ever works the same way twice, I guess.


  2. 'Stinkers', I like that word, lol...I had a struggle last night, but I finished my collage satisfied....yes sometimes you have that, plus imperfection is nothing, 'pure personal expression' is the attraction to an art piece!

    Smiles, Anke :)

  3. Just discovered your blog Great! Love your take on imperfection. The idea of perfection does WAY more harm than good, and it can be a real barrier for some in art.
