Here's what I've been up to lately. I painted the cover with wall putty to add some texture, then painted it with acrylics- first yellow, then pink, then peach. When the paint was dry, I looked through my paper cut outs, and arranged various pictures on the cover.
It's funny about art- you never know what's going to come out. Sometimes you're inspired, and sometimes you're lazy. One thing I've learned is you don't stop when you're tired or lazy. Sometimes you don't particularly like what's forming but we need to get rid of the inner critic that says, "That's ugly! Throw it away!" I look at some of the animals God has created- even if they looked strange, God didn't destroy them!
Here's fangtooth and below is the angora rabbit. If I made them, I'd be tempted to hide the !mistake. But God didn't destroy these and other strange looking creatures. In Genesis, after creating anything, He said, "It is very good!" meaning He appreciated them all!
We should follow our Father and learn to appreciate our own creations and not be too hard on ourselves!
