“Embracing Mistakes: The Journey to Creating Beauty through Layers”
In the world of painting, I have always believed that there are no mistakes, only layers. This motto has guided my artistic journey, as I have learned to embrace the process of painting over and transforming what may initially seem like a flawed piece into something beautiful. It reminds me of how my entire path as an artist began, with a detour from something I excelled in to pursue my true calling. I am grateful for the second chance I have been given, and I attribute it all to a higher power.
When I first started painting, it was not with the intention of selling my work in stores or making a career out of it. In fact, it was a wrong turn that led me to a pivotal moment. One day, a friend suggested that my art would be perfect for a store owned by someone they knew. Reluctantly, I decided to take the leap and make a cold call, even though it was outside of my comfort zone. Little did I know that this wrong turn would eventually lead me to a stroke of luck.
As I walked into the store, I quickly realized that it may not have been the right one, but I instantly fell in love with it. Despite being an introvert and inexperienced in selling my work, I mustered up the courage to speak with the owner. Surprisingly, this encounter caught the attention of a representative from a major company, who saw my work on display and offered me a licensing deal. It was this unexpected detour that paved the way for a whole new chapter in my artistic journey.
Looking back, I am grateful for that wrong turn and the lessons it taught me. It serves as a constant reminder that even our mistakes can lead us to something better. This mindset has been particularly valuable in my role as a parent. When my daughter, Sophie, was young, she displayed strong perfectionist tendencies. I was concerned about the pressure she put on herself to achieve perfection. To help her overcome this mindset, I shared with her my belief that mistakes are merely layers in the process of growth and that they often bring forth something beautiful in the end.
Being open about my own failures and setbacks has allowed Sophie to witness firsthand how I handle challenges. From failed collections to business relationships gone sour, she has seen me navigate through it all. I hope that by observing these experiences, she understands that failure is not the end but a stepping stone towards success.
In conclusion, my journey as an artist has been a series of unexpected twists and turns, reminding me that mistakes are not to be feared but embraced. Each layer and detour has played a role in shaping my path and teaching me valuable lessons along the way. I am grateful for every wrong turn that has ultimately led me to where I am today.
