Ruthieonart - Creativity is messy

I finished a painting this weekend. I started it several months ago. I probably paint once a week, some times more. This watercolor has been painted in maybe twelve sessions. I like to take my time and let things dry. What was different about this piece was that unlike most of my other ones, from the first time my brush touched the paper I liked what I saw. I usually struggle with a painting and I often don’t like it until it is done, or as it is done. Sometimes things just get overworked so I will paint the subject again, hopefully with a freshness. Paintings seem to come easier after a struggle. Struggle always has worth. It is how we grow as artists, it is how we move forward in life. For me, as a believer, it is an essential ingredient needed to move into what is next. God has a way of taking struggle or what people call tests and using them to mature us if we don’t give up.

It is OK to struggle. It is the willingness to walk through the learning process, not liking what we see, but keeping at it until it is done that allows me to make better art. My motto is creativity is messy. People often ask me what that means. This is what it means.

I have been drawing and painting since I was a young child. My Bachelor degree is from University of Texas at Dallas in Arts and Performance; Visual Arts with an emphasis in Drawing and Painting. I am a graphic designer by trade.

It is my hope that you find my art beautiful, full of life and worthy of a place in your home.

    Put me in a garden, seat me at a table with good food, family and friends, or let me travel to some beautiful place and I will be content, but I will also most likely want to paint what I encounter.
