You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try !!

I would say that 75% of my efforts, no matter what they are fail. It is all a part of growing as an artist. I think that it is so good when you can look at your older art, even 3 months later, and realize the mistakes in it. I love that. I never rework my paintings, I date them all and consider them a history of my learning. I'm sure most artists feel that way, I know I am not unique in that.

The image is of a painting I did about 20 years ago now. When I look at it I see things I love, memories that caused it to be painted. I also see things missing when I compare it with the work I am doing now. One thing that is missing is any kind of setting. I realized years later that the reason my women were always within a blank white background was because I was not seeking out life, had never gone anywhere really, past the walls of my pottery studio that I made my living from for 20 years. Onward now.. onward.

I think the first step is to have awareness, once aware, you can move forward. We fail because we are not aware but we have to fail in order to become aware.
