The other day I sat down with every intention of drawing a gingerbread man.
I made several attempts at drawing a gingerbread man. Each time something was off. Either the head didn’t look right or the body was off. After filling the page with failed attempts of drawing a gingerbread man, I decided to turn to a fresh page and try one more time.
This time I decided to just let my hand flow. Before I knew it I had Christmas candles with holly leaves and berries. Not anywhere close to a gingerbread man.
Sometimes you just have to tell your head to shut-up and let your heart direct your hand. When you create art from the heart and not from your head, it is effortless and multiple attempts are never needed.
