I don't normally go for arty speeches, but I'd love to know your comments on the below, at least as much as I'd like to know your thoughts on the above:
Art: it teaches us to make the most of a situation, regardless of how we got there.
When creating art (whether it be with paint, digital media, music, performance...) it is all too easy to make a mistake. To focus all of our efforts on correcting that mistake, and every mistake, is tedious, uncreative and despiriting. To live with it, incorporate it, and learn from it, is to encourage development and originality. To focus on purely manifesting an idea, with no room for change, is to set up for disappointment; to focus on creating something amazing, welcoming influence and change, is to set up for joy.
These drawings have no preconceived idea about how they will look. Mistakes are incorporated; turned into something else. This creates an unpredictable flow of shapes, molded by what I've learnt from previous drawings, and the drawings of others.
It doesn't take a huge leap of imagination to see how this can apply to life.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Keep learning. Art is a process, not a product.
