Cosmos - Floral Palette Knife Painting


"Cosmos"
12 x 12 x 3/4 inches, Oil on Gallery wrapped canvas
Painted with the palette knife
Sometimes we are our own enemy. The last post mentioned regret for the things we'd not done, but why don't we just do it? Like the Nike Ad? "Just Do It"...well for many many personal reasons most likely.
As long as the reasons are valid. For here's another quote to contemplate:
"Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right" -- Henry Ford
I think we can defeat ourselves by saying "I can't" just as you can do anything you put your mind to. So I think I'll challenge myself to not say "I can't" and see how I might be able to "can" and "do". Even if it takes a few tries. Like the The Little Engine That Could...I should be saying, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can" and chug along.
