Our artists are winning awards!
I know that Mark tries to paint every day, even, while on vacation. When you look at his paintings, you see 40 + years of practice. I believe many times when we begin a new sport, craft, or instrument, after trying the new technique or a skill a couple of times, we give up. I know I have letting my inner critic tell me that I am a dummy, unable to learn something new many times (usually with sports). But, I also know that if I keep at it, I will become fairly competent. I think of learning how to throw pots on the potter’s wheel. It took me forever to learn how to center 5 pounds of clay. Now, 25 years later, creating bowls on the wheel, is the best place for me to think. It’s like riding a bike. Now, I’ve got it! Yup, I was in the studio yesterday!
