Myquillyn Smith’s book, The Nesting Place, is a concept I appreciate. She begins by encouraging us to forget about perfection saying, “Things don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful …. There is no wrong way to create beauty.”

Aren’t those great words of wisdom?

In fact, they recently inspired me, and my painterly ways. This autumn, I watched the birch tree leaves turn crisp yellow. Later, in the studio, I found myself painting beyond their saffron-color. I dipped my palette knife into ruby red, chartreuse green, and sometimes, a bit of violet. The completed painting didn’t perfectly match nature, but like Myquilln Smith, that was okay.

Maybe you’ll join my mentor and me: The #1 reason to give up on perfection:

Imperfection can be an enjoyable and beautiful place.
