The first step in my creative evolution required simply starting. This sounds easier than it was.

3. I am no longer precious about my creation.

The piece above is something I started in the summer. It was deeply personal. Intensely fun. But I didn’t stop when I should have.

For months it stared at me, taunted, and filled me with regret. What total nonsense. So I tore it apart, covered it over, returned to white. Relief.

“Sometimes you`ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you`ll find that when you`re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.” – Tina Turner

You tell it Ms. Turner! I simply cannot wait to see what comes next.
