Oh that’s nice!

So tonight I painted my first watercolor of the year. A friend in a different state and I were going to video chat and work on art/craft projects together. I had decided what I was going to do after searching for inspiration. While chatting I was painting and realized I didn’t want to focus so hard on trying to follow my inspiration.

The painting I did is nice. Its has elements of my inspiration, but looks nothing like I originally intended. I showed my inspiration to two friends along with my final piece…you know what they said? “Nice.”

And it is. Its nice. Its quaint.

But what if I really tried. What if I took the time to do better and to practice this skill.

Maybe next time it will be “wow!”
