“You’ll ache. And you’re gonna love it. It will crush you. And you’re still going to love all of it. Doesn’t it sound lovely beyond belief?”⠀
This is one of my favourite quotes by Ernest Hemingway – a testament to the dedication needed in the pursuit of your brand of happiness.⠀
I was feeling a bit ‘undone’ by the neverending pace of these tiny paintings today and so I gave this one a go with a palette knife instead of a brush to shake things up a bit. I only used a small, and very soft round-tipped brush right at the end to soften and blend a few of the cloud lines. It’s my painting equivalent of giving up some control in the pursuit of unexpected results.⠀

Whatever you’re chasing, don’t quit! Just try a different approach when things get stagnant.⠀
