Just another picture until the next

“Must you know that yours will be the “better” picture before you pick up the brush and paint? Can it not simply be another picture? Another expression of beauty?
Must a rose be “better” than an iris in order to justify its existence?”

Neale Donald Walsch, Friendship with God: An Uncommon Dialogue

I had a few busy weeks just wanted to check in and post an image that I completed. Spending my time between working with my monthly meeting and yearly meeting.  I am happy I can continue using my design skills to help out. 

As I draw, I notice I am becoming more critical of my work. I am slowing down, considering aspects of the drawings more closely. I guess that is why I like this quote. Does the next drawing have to be better than the last?  Yes, I want to learn and travel the path with more skill, but skill is produced not only by study but by practice.
