Taking a second look

Have you ever been so involved in something, all you could see was the details full of flaws?

Sometimes it helps to take a step back and then take a second look at things.

I’m no artist but I have taken up acrylic painting when I get stressed or when I get down time.

This piece is one I started this morning and I stressed over it and finally left it only to come back later and realize that even though this canvas is incomplete there is beauty about it. It isn’t half bad. At least I think, it has potential to get better from here.

So wherever you are in love don’t study the details so hard. You see more flaws about yourself than others do. Take a step back. Relax and go in for a second look. You’ll see beauty. You will see beauty even in am incomplete project. So pick up the paintbrush and begin again.

It’s not as bad as you think.
