the ugly duckling
Do you know that story The Lucky Duckling? It's the story where the swan hangs out with the ducks and everyone thinks she is ugly...not knowing that she is a swan. Well..I am sure hoping one day I will be a swan...but for now it's the ugly duckling all the way. Funny way of saying that as I morph away from what I understand- painting plein air every day, producing a new work each time- to working from my stored memory I am seriously suffering from the uglies. I reread Carlson to remind myself why I really need to make this change." The memory exaggerates the essentials; the trifles of incidents tend to become blurred...Until mastery of memory is reached, the brain refuses to act as a filter. "
Without the filter you record the information but the mood needs to be the most important.
My recent change in content has actually made some subscribers leave. I am very sad to see them go, but I have to do what I have to do.
PS I will hopefully be able to post part three of Lynne's interview tomorrow.
