Returning to painting and photography after too many years in advertising and retail, I was tickled by happening upon this advice:
"Nothing, and I mean nothing good has ever come out of avoiding fear of embarassment. It weights a hundred pounds." Wendy MacNaugton
"Don't even think about making art--just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art !!"
That said, I must go and make up for lost time.
