If you find yourself truly stuck today, and you’ve worked yourself to exhaustion, remember, tomorrow morning is a new beginning.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with stopping, refilling your bucket, sleeping, and starting fresh again in the morning.  Tomorrow is another opportunity to try again and learn something new.  This is NOT failure, and it’s not giving up.  This is the process of learning.  It’s being a smart, intelligent, living being and recognizing that sometimes it’s better to rest and to try again when you’re fresh.”

  1. Love these! I think Halloween is my most favorite holiday. I am loving how you create. So fun to watch and to see what you do.

  2. Love this triptych Tracy – it’s just such a FRIENDLY Day of the Dead piece! Leaving the skulls in black really gives them all of ancient look. Your backgrounds are all just perfect and the dimension/texture from the dabbers is just wonderful. Thanks bunches too for the fab video tutorial. j.
