The canvas is your life.
The color pallet is what your environment has given you to work with.
We must at times clean our brushes of old paint.
Different aspects of our painting require different brushes. Some things are worth us using a small detailed brush as we spend time creating. Other things are worth broad wide strokes never to be touched again.
Every painting has flaws.
You never know what others will find interesting about your painting.
Everyone is happier when your painting is hung for all to see rather than being hidden away in the back of the studio.
