Truth Hurts

12th June 2023 Beena


Hello guys😊😊😊. I hope everyone is well. I posted this painting which I felt fell through as it had many mistakes. It was an acrylic painting. I find painting curves on petals a challenge. It is more so with acrylic. However, by the time I completed it, there was some semblance of lilies. Many liked the reflections in the water. I, too, liked that featureπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.


The comments about my art may never be the truth🀨🀨. All of you are compassionate towards me since I am still trying to master a new skill. It reminds me of how we treat a young child trying to walk. The child develops a fear of falling when reprimanded oftenπŸ˜‘πŸ˜’πŸ˜’. We gain confidence with falls. It is the same in life. When we over-protect our children from a young age, they don’t learn coping skills. Then when they become adults, we expect them to function well. It is a strange paradox that we think is normal🀨🀨. It is not normal, is what I think. I would love to hear your thoughts on thisπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™.


Thanks for supporting my art; the truth would hurt me moreπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I have a few who critique my art constructively, and that helps me improveπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½. I hope to continue painting and writing my thoughts as long as possible.

  1. Beena, you speak of imperfections in your painting – which I couldn’t make out.
    Lotuses are always a pleasure for the eyes – and it’s oft mentioned in love and religion.
    Keep painting Beena, those gentle strokes of yours keep me happy as well.

  2. Perhaps one is more critical of oneself than required..each one sees a product differently..

    As for the child learning to walk..if the child was chided or punished instead of being encouraged everytime it fell ..can you imagine the life long trauma the child would go through? At that age a sense of safety, and encouragement is extremely important for the brain to develop in a positive way…and help the child grow with confidence.

  3. Long time ago when I was in the rat race of sales i came across a book if i remember right titled who moved my cheese
    The first page reads ‘never attempt to be a perfectionist’
    One of problems with humans is we attempt perfection when we don’t reach it we worry, feel sad, depressed etc
    Life is full of imperfections & imperfectists
    Keep painting its a lovely way to tide over negative thoughts ‘each of your painting is a creation'(courtesy Dr Ittymani)
    A step further each of us is a creation too God never looks back to check if it’s perfect or not let us live with our imperfections πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
