Art is knowing...
As you may or may not know, I have been in the business of selling craft and design since I first learned how to sew when I was 13 years of age. I have tried many things to establish myself as an artist and designer and recently I have had many break throughs in where this journey is taking me. I found this quote about a year ago and have I have used it as my mantra because being an artist can be confusing at times.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing what to keep. - Scott Adams
For years I have held on to many things, whether it be material possessions, grudges, and fear. Now, I am starting to learn how to let things go, subtract, exclude in order to see the idea or vision that can be buried beneath the surface.
