Playing It Safe

Source250W“Playing it safe can be the riskiest choice we ever make.” Sarah Ban Breathnoch

Wow. This quote struck such a positive note with me. For sure it can be applied to painting! It’s that bold stroke, that unusual technique that you would never have found if you hadn’t dared to take chances, that can make the difference between a nice painting and a fabulous one. Sure, there will be the ugly ducklings – more about those another time – but that very special painting may be waiting just the other side of boldness too. What techniques are you wanting to try that might challenge your status quo? (Thanks for the quote: @greatestquotes)
