Cat in a Dress
Remember when you were little and believed you could draw anything? You didn’t know horses shouldn’t be purple and roses weren’t striped. You drew for the simple pleasure of making marks.

And then you grew up. You swapped your creative naïveté for some semblance of adult sophistication.

If you long for those playful days, grab a crayon and draw something impossible. Invite your inner child to have a little fun.

Art is more than mindless play. Every swipe of charcoal, each brush stroke, pushes your internal critic further into the background until finally it fades, powerless and impotent, into some forgotten corner of the mind.

Stop telling yourself you can’t “art” and just start doing it.

Van Gogh said it best:

“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”

Thanks for visiting. I hope something here inspires you to pick up a pencil or paintbrush. Click on Gallery to view my paintings and drawings.
