Art Inspiration: Embracing Change


Hello My Fellow Art Lovers- 

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."

-Lao Tzu

What would you like to change, to recreate?

This week I created this painting....
 Along the Picket Fence 2023

A few years ago I painted the same scene.  It looked like this...
 Along the Picket Fence 2017

Rarely in life can we really redo something because everything is constantly changing.... our bodies, our brains, the materials around us.  I didn't look at the first painting as I made the second.  It is interesting to me how different they are.

"It is not possible to step twice into the same river."

Picasso was constantly changing and updating his style.  Look at how his self portrait evolved over the years... from age 15 to age 25 to age 83


We can recreate, redo, redecorate and revamp- yes.  But with each new round it comes out just a little bit different.  Experiment and notice what those changes say about yourself.
