Want in one hand…

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote(s) for the day…

“Individualism, as a definition of holding to personal ideals, is classed as obstinacy and anti-social.
Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise.
When compromise enters our moral fibre, it spreads like a cancerous growth.
We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards, but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right, come what may, we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control.
Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle.
The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult.
We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline.
In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles
for false values and doing it in the
black market of human relationships. . . .”
~Ralph W. Hardy
Busy today with a new canvas…
a world of possibility dressed all in white…
and putting the final touches on the New Fairy World.
(the freaking moon finally dried)
I did start and finish a work over the weekend that has nothing to do with
the Fairy World show but I don’t like it very much,
it’s dark and murky from being overworked
(read: not knowing when to stop and leave it alone…Aaaiiieee!)
and not having the paint supplies that I
wanted to do the project in the first place.
Oh well…I keep on keeping on…
So, I am happy to return to the
Gallery Showings works…
as that’s really where my mind,
heart and energy need to be.
I move forward with grace and grit…
such is life.
I am not bitter mind you…
just utterly determined to not lose my
focus at this moment in time
by trivial obstacles to my success…
such as wants verses needs.
I am iron woman…
Have a great Monday all,
hope the world is a welcoming
place for you to be today.
