These words speak to me....

Saw this on Tumblr and these words seem to be speaking directly to me.  After spending several years with the medium of mosaics, I decided to turn to my love of painting about 14 months ago.  And, in that time I have not produced one piece that I am happy with.  Every painting seems to be a struggle, and I can't find my bearings. However, after reading these pearls of wisdom by Mr. Glass, I have renewed energy to paint.  I will just keep fighting the creative fight, so to speak and just keep putting paint to canvas.

Paint.
Paint some more.
Paint even more.
and then just keep on painting!

Yes we need to keep on pushing and pushing and painting. What is life without art?

Boy, ain't it the truth? I am a big fan of Ira Glass- have the This American Life app on my iPad. Listen daily, trying to catch up with his past shows.

When I read something like this I realize that I am not alone in this struggle. And it affirms the feeling that I am traveling along the road others have been down. Thanks for posting it.
