I was flipping through the first few pages of Annie Sloan's book, Quick and Easy Paint Transformations, and came across this passage:
The look and feel of Annie's paint, and the patina the waxes create are what I love. They don't require perfection. The pieces actually look better when you just let everything happen spontaneously. I can easily change what my initial intention was, without reservation, because the product is so easy to work with!
So let go. Be free to create whatever comes to you naturally! No over thinking. Please, just try. Deal?
While we're at it. I think we can apply this philosophy of "seeking perfection in imperfection" to people also...
No, he's not perfect. But I bet he made you smile!
