I am learning about accepting creations that are not quite done, did not turn out as I expected and those that need more work. I am trying to learn creative patience: it might not be looking right but it might later or I might later see what needs to be done to make the piece better. At the moment, I am vacillating between creating another painting or reworking the one that I had already done. I realize that I sometimes hang on to a piece for emotional reasons. Having put this down in writing, I am struck that this realization is completely irrational.s I have learned that as I continue to create, my work improves and I could create an even better rendition of this very same image. I have often found that writing works similarly: I frantically write, read it silently, re-read silently again and it sounds fine. However, when I read the work aloud I am able to note needed corrections and changes.
It is wonderful to be a part of all of these lessons. My creative journey continues to move, flow and change. I am delighted to apply all that I am learning.
