What we say to ourselves makes a difference. Be your own best friend and be kind to yourself as you paint.
Later you can be the judge, jury and jailer! Or not.
What I have learned so far:
The power of positive thinking is huge. If you create by baking, playing a musical instrument , gardening...be kind to yourself and nurturing. You will at least have more fun that way.
