The sun shone briefly yesterday morning. It was enough to believe we had an opporunity to paint our front fence.
However only a very small section of the fence was completed before the rain commenced again.
We were using paint brushes however I am keen to try the ‘sock method’ once the sunshine returns (read ‘Green Eggs and Cans’ recent post about her sock painting technique).
So my painting pursuits moved indoors.
If you ask a room full of children “who can paint a polar bear” all hands will go up. Ask the same question to a room full of adults and you would be lucky to witness one raised hand.
As adults, when did we loose our belief that we can do anything? When did we start believing excellence is required before partaking in an activity that interests us? (hence hindering many from ‘having a go’).
You can paint a polar bear. Not being exceptional at painting polar bears is irrelevant (just ask a child).
So if you have always wanted to explore your creative side, just give it a go. At worst you will have fun, at best you may discover with practice, you become exceptional.
P.S the wood used for the sign was recycled from around our home.
Update ** Here are photos of the finished cubby house sign.
