Why I Cried In Art School

My painting teacher shifted uncomfortably while I cried in the hallway outside the classroom. I was so frustrated.  I could envision what I wanted my painting to be but I couldn't make the darn paint do what I wanted.   My teacher said, "You're the one who wants to be here."    This was true. I wanted to paint like Rembrandt instantly and it just wasn't happening.  But even Rembrandt couldn't paint like Rembrandt in the beginning.  I wasn't letting myself be a learner.

Let yourself be a learner.

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."

John Wooden
