A Word from the Author
While experimenting with the projects in this book, you will make some beautiful things and some ugly things, You will grow both inspired and frustrated. You will ruin something and throw it away, or a fabulous Phoenix will rise from the ashes, and you will surprise yourself by painting something more fabulous than you ever expected. Just be loose and be flexible so you can respond fluidly to what is in front of you.” -Margaret Peot
