Do you want to know what to do next in your art?

Painting is a process of call and response. You make a mark, step back and then evaluate what to do next. Over time, your ability to discern the next, best mark improves. And when it does, your art practice becomes less stressful, and more joyful.

It sounds easy, but it repeated efforts to improve.

Here is a really good tip: When you are not sure what to do next in your art, refer to what you made previously. It’s that easy.

In art often you have to start before you know where you are going.

There are no roadmaps for each of our creative paths if they are truly our own.

But the answers are there. Just take a peek behind you.

How do you know what to do next in your art?
