Today I started working with calm intention on my children’s book cover image. After weeks of floundering, I now feel that I can complete this drawing. I’ve passed the point no return — I might as well just plow ahead and accept the end result. However it turns out will be okay.
My usual pattern is to hate the image I’m working on, and then appreciate it when I return to it later. In this case, I’m going to trust my process and call on my inner Art Soldier to fend off the waves of disapproval that my thinking mind keeps pouring out.
