I've spent an entire afternoon trying out two new recipes. Bread and soup. I'm about to sample the results. "This had better be good!" I'm thinking. But I know from experience that new recipes are often not good---or at least not as good as my old stand-by recipe for whatever it was. So I'm prepared---even expecting---disappointment.
Surprise. It was good!

What does this have to do with art-making?  Well, I'm working on an illustration right now, figuring out how to handle it, using my usual media, and not thrilled with what I've come up with so far. Maybe I'll try out that new technique I've been considering. I might be pleasantly surprised---again.


  1. Take the risk, Wendy! You might find the new technique is spectacular! Have fun with experimenting!
