I do so many different types of art and crafts (to me they are the same, but that is another rant) that I find it hard sometimes to switch from the perfectionism part of quilting to the open, freeness of mixed media and painting. I sometimes beat myself up over not sewing the perfect seam or lining up the fabric just so and then I beat myself up over not being able to splat paint around on the canvas in a carefree manner. So hard to find a happy medium.
I worry to much. I worry to much about that perfect seam and that perfect sloppiness. It is time to learn to get over it. Let it go. Stop worrying about being perfect. I try so hard sometimes it stops being fun. That is not the point of art. Art should be fun, carefree, and enjoyable. Not something to worry about. My long term goal for this year is to stop worrying about my art. Whether it is a crooked seam or a piece of art that just isn't quit messy enough I'm going to accept it. No more telling myself it isn't perfect. So what. Move on. Make more art. Try again tomorrow.
