So I pulled out every colour of paint that I didn't like, pulled out the bright oranges, reds + blacks. I wrote horrible angry words down in caps, everything my inner bitch has ever uttered
I sat down next to my husband after one night in the studio + he asked me how my painting went.
"Crap" I said, "I feel that I haven't gotten any where + I hate what I am creating. HATE. IT. I don't like ugly art"
I went to bed that night + thought about skipping this lesson, but a funny thing happened the next day...
As I sat down in front of my painting I realised that I didn't hate it, in fact my ugly picture was strangely cute + I felt weirdly protective of it.
MistiB was such an awesome + inspiring teacher. During this lesson I felt vulnerable, pushed out of my comfort zone, really really uncomfortable + then so inspired + free.
I don't remember having felt this way about a piece of art since my 'Trust your Heart' painting.
And I love my ugly person + my ugly page.
Have you thought about creating ugly art? I would love to hear how you felt once the paint dried. If you have never thought about it, I guarantee it is worth it!
By the way - have you entered this months give away yet? There are only three days left to enter + is open to everyone, you just need to tell me three simple words - 'I want it!'
