Painting is like putting on makeup or adding an Instagram filter. You can make highlights, contrasts, change colors and cover less favorable parts. It can be very funny, but also a little dangerous. At least when you're not playing around anymore trying to find cool effects, but chasing that damn perfection! I am painting sand right now. I am realizing this painting aint going to be anything near perfect, or more importantly - not near my normal standards or what I know I am capable of. I wont be able to make all the alterations it would need and I am trying to deal with it. If not even Dali thought he was able to reach perfection, I shouldn't either. I always try to have that in mind!
