Curiousity Did Not Kill the Watercolor Artist

How many times have you saved something you want to use in your art and never gotten around to using it? Somehow I’ve moved from creating an artist lifestyle brand into the theme of “waiting or deferring till later or the perfect time.”  

I might have waited another 10 years to use this photo I have of some antique wooden dolls because today I thought it wouldn’t make an interesting subject for a painting. I was about to select something else to paint when my stubborn voice spoke up, (its usually quiet). My stubborn voice whined, “but you like that picture, please yourself + follow the advice you give to all your students, “It doesn’t have to be perfect.” 

My plan is to blow on this little spark of not waiting anti perfectionism, are you with me?
