Insist On Yourself, Never Imitate!

“Hello, Gorgeous!”

This little tree is looking more like Spring than Autumn…but she could care less what I think! “Hello, Gorgeous!” is intent on being herself to the max 😀

Insisting on ourselves is essential when tapping into our creativity and developing as artists. The below Emerson quote sums up why:

Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession. That which each (we) can do best, none but his (our) Maker can teach him (us).

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Do you sell how to paint with directions and colors on your tree paintings ? They are very unique and I would like to see if I could do one. Thank you
