SallyAnn Mickel Spotted Springs Studio
I am amazed all the time with artists who don't seize the moment and take advantage of situations. They pass up golden opportunities! They get stubborn, they bulk at a new idea and there by miss an opportunity to learn! I've met sculptors, oil painters, pastelists, etc. who refuse to think creatively when a problem arises. From being dissatisfied with a Life Session pose to complaining about some physical ailment, artists need to work around problems. My artwork projects are not so precious that I won't switch gears in mid-stroke. I'll try something different just to see what will happen. I always think I may stumble onto some technique or look that will be really interesting. Hey, I'll always go for it! I'll always Be Curious, Be Adventurous, Be Happy, Work Hard, Stay Peaceful.
