Experience is a…

Experience is a brutal teacher, but you learn. My God, do you learn. -C.S. Lewis



Porcelainia is the art of Bob Jaber. This man has such a beautiful way of looking at art and loving what you create.

I love these quotes of his:

“It’s a personal thing, as art should be personal.”

“It’s not what you start with, or what you end up with. It’s what’s in the beginning and the end that’s the meaning of the whole act of creation.”

Spending twenty years combining your passions and doing what you love is a wonderful thing to aspire to.

Life lessons from Bob Ross

Bob Ross could not only teach you to paint, he could also teach you some life lessons. Here’s a few quotes for you.

P.S. One day I want to pick up some supplies, turn on an episode, and join him in painting happy little trees and clouds. Who could have a bad day doing that?

1. Look around. Look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere. You only have to look to see it.

2. Any way you want it to be, that’s just right.

3. Nature is so fantastic. Enjoy it. Let it make you happy.

4. We’re gonna make some big decisions in our little world.

5. You can do anything you want to do. This is your world.

6. Gotta have opposites dark and light, light and dark in painting. It’s like life. Gotta have a little sadness once in a while so you know when the good times come.

7. And my favorite: There are no mistakes, just happy little accidents.

“When you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing. Sometimes you just need to relax, breathe, let go, and just live in the moment.”

Lately I have had many thoughts and worries running through my head. It’s so easy sometimes to let them take over my mind. I’m trying to take the above sentiment to heart and remember to just relax, breathe, let go and, most importantly, live in the moment.
