Practice Makes Perfect?

I've always enjoyed Austin Kleon's blog and books.  This is a good read with a very simple but powerful your craft...everyday. I remember a lecture I went to with a watercolor artist. Something he said stuck with me....not that I have been able to live up to this....but he told us that you have to practice every day. He paints everyday.  Not many people are born like Mozart who was playing in public at the age of 6. Most of us have to slog through our days...but I guess that's the point.  Practice, practice, practice.

Okay campers rise and shine and don’t forget your booties

My daily creative practice is different from my "real" creative practice. I have my photo series, View through the Windshield, where I take photos while pulled over in the car, literally through the windows. Sometimes, I'll get out of the car, or roll down the window, but the creative constraint is that the photos are taken from the car, from the driver's seat, when the car is pulled over or parked.

It's not much, but over time, it surprised me by kind of building into something. A pattern emerged of what I like to take photos of. It's been really interesting.
