Photo Friday ~ "Accidental"
taken too soon, canon digital rebel xt
Today, while in the midst of pasteling a drawing, many of my accidents turned out to look pretty cool. I love that about letting go with your art. Sometimes it just means releasing your preconceived ideas of what it should look like and allowing it to take on a life of its own. I wanted the drawing to be more smooth and it ended up with more texture as a result of those accidents or mistakes.
This is such a huge lesson to learn not just with our art but with our careers, our relationships, our future plans. Expectations and preconceived ideas can really bite you in the arse sometimes. Am I right? So here's to embracing our mistakes, our accidents and learning how to transform them into something rare and beautiful in our lives. Who would have known that a different path from what we expected would feel so right in the end?
