Being an artist is great. I moved both heaven and earth yesterday in this painting--and came out with a better painting. These are "The Optimist and the Pessimist." (acrylic 40 x 30) Before (bottom) and After (top). Are you an Optimist or a Pessimist?
I am the author of Master Disaster, 5 Ways to Rescue Desperate Watercolors. Based on a course that I have developed over many years, the bones of this book give you a plan to finish your paintings--and even your bombs. The meat of my book and course, though, is to help you structure your life to encourage and accommodate painting. Painters have to paint. This is how to do it.
