It is easy to get overwhelmed with the details. The small things can feel like they weigh you down.
Get lost in the moment. Let what comes naturally flow. Be in the moment. Feel every color, every brush stroke, every mark you make. When you take a step back you will see, that every one of those things completes the bigger picture. Every painting is a paragraph in your story. The novel you create will be genuine. You will make others feel like they have known you for a life time.
Appreciate every step along the way. You are building a story worth telling.
