|To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. -Henri Bergson|
Poke your head out the door and sit in the sun for 5 minutes ... listen to some good music that is not normally your fare .... relax and enjoy the scenery ..... read something positive ... turn off the TV or computer for a few hours ....... study something new ..... jump on your mini-trampoline ...whatever.....
I'm still pressing on to learn and improve .... may not seem like it but it is true :-)
Painting from real life is always a challenge and in many ways better than painting from photos ... painting with a room full or more accomplished artists is always a pleasure and very rewarding.
