Don't you love it when you can sit back and enjoy the ride? Hubby and I have a caravan and we travel for a few weeks a year in it. He drives and I navigate but mostly sit back and enjoy the ride. We know where we are going and have no idea what will happen along the way.
When I first went back into creating during 2020, I just played with the colours, played with the subjects and I had no expectation of how a painting would work out. I enjoyed the moment and got lost in the tranquility and fun of it all. I experimented with colour, brushes, techniques, and styles. I enjoyed the ride with no expectation.
I believe art should be enjoyed, whether you are an observer, a professional artist with an art practice or it is your hobby. Mostly, art is for me enjoying the ride with no expectation.
