How many times did you waste a chance waiting for a better one, for the perfect moment, the perfect guy, the perfect job… like the poor fisherman throwing away the big fishes he catches as he only has a tiny frying pan at home. The big fishes just won’t fit!!!
The most important lesson I learnt from my art classes at the faculty of Fine Art back home is to be bold, to take risks.
Your life is your canvas. You could paint it any way you wish. If you choose dull, monotonous colors just to ‘be on the safe side’, you will end up with a boring lifeless picture. “What if I mess up? What if I used the wrong colors?” I used to ask. “Just add a fresh new layer,” my professor calmly answered. Accidental mistakes in art, like in life, are lucky strokes. They teach us and force us out of our comfort zone. “There is no right or wrong,” I was taught, “these are not mistakes, they are opportunities,” my professor added.
So, when drawing on your canvas of life, be Creative, Be Bold, Just DO IT!!!
