Last weekend at the Little Craft Show this little lady was in my booth. She's loosely depicted in today's painting. She was flipping through my sketchbooks and we were chatting about them. Then she said,
"I can't draw."
There was this long, awkward pause. I know my eyes were bugging out with frustration and I was trying to figure out how I was going to explain this project to her, this idea that quantity leads to quality. But before I could get any words out, she said,
"I started doing a little doodle most days and I found....I CAN draw."
Whew. I wanted to hug her but I'm not really a hugger so I just smiled and said,
"Yes. You can."
P.S. There's still time to sign up for the new year of creative habits course. You know...if you want to turn your CAN'Ts into CANs.
