Creating with No Expectations
One expectation. It will look like an elephant. Instead of following a specific prompt or making a swap in hopes that someone else will appreciate the effort and time, remember to focus on why you make art. What is the reason you create? For others? For yourself? To self express? I relied on 5 minutes a prepainted journal page with white gesso and watercolor wash. A pencil and onto the page this elephant is born. Scribbled and shaded. I love him like you'd love a puppy dog. Create with no expectations, just try something new and keep it simple. Sometimes you'll surprise yourself and yield amazing results.
