Journal: Learn from the masters.
In one of the most famous paintings of all time the paint is running.
”What a mess.”
Should Henri Matisse have stopped what he was
doing and cleared up that little drip.
Would we have loved it any more?
Look at the hands where they are joined...
is that really a hand?
Well of course it is. It is an utterly beautiful one
but not a perfect one.
Would you love this painting more of the
the hand were perfect?
That iconic painting.
That perfect symbol of love, spirit, community.
The real question I think is would we have ever
loved it so at all?
Learn from the masters.
There is so
much to learn from the masters.
When you hook, hook with spirit.
Hook with force.
Hook with energy.
Hook with joy.
Get engaged with your work.
Imagine the piece finished.
Imagine the piece loved.
