Self Taught "non" Artist. My creations have nothing to do with me - they are a practice in patience and faith. What I have learned - I have garnered through so many talented artists that are brave enough to share their blogs, posts, videos and demonstrations. I try and "learn" all the time. A canvas will sit in my studio for weeks, even months and then I will see something, start playing and the next thing I know - it turns in to something I like. That's Faith and Patience.
The more I play, pray and dive in, the more comfortable I am with where ever the painting lands. It never fails - that what ever idea i have going into a creative session, if I let go, it turns into something more than I could have expected.
