Don't Look Down, Just Fly!--Journal

Don't Look Down, Just Fly!, Moleskine Cahier Journal, 5.25" x 8.25"

For Sale in
My Etsy Shop



Your art is unique,

unlike any other artist,

just as your thumbprints

are uniquely your own.

First emulate,

then originate.


Don't Look Down,

Just Fly!


By exploring and studying your favorite artists and lots of practice, eventually you will come to your own style. Thus, "first emulate, then originate."

Enjoy your artistic discoveries and give yourself permission to fly. By following your heart, you will find "your" style.

There's a handy pocket inside the back cover.

For more information about moleskines, read my previous post, The Romantic History of Moleskines.

First emulate, then originate--and fly!

Wonderful post Fannie I think it is so true. I hear from a lot of people that their work looks too much like some one elses. What they fail to realize is that in the begining that makes perfect sense and it is part of the learing process. Once they are comfortable with what they have learned then they will find themselves branching off... until they fly ;)

Smooches

Another lovely journal. LOL, still laughing at yesterday's conversation about the Moleskine. Sorry. Your encouraging words are wonderful. You are much appreciated and loved.

Thanks, Melissa. Working hard on stocking it for the holidays. Your new works are wonderful!

You're right, Steph . . . emulate first, then fly on your own!

Sherry . . . you experienced one of my "serious" moments. Hah! Thanks for providing balance. ;-D You are loved!
