Developing new ways to do things #gemstars

Over the past few years I have been working on a new way to create small paintings.  People seem to be downsizing and moving into smaller and smaller homes, offices and buildings.
I decided to only focus on painting smaller paintings. Learning how to do this was more difficult than I had anticipated, and took much longer then I ever dreamed.
In a sense, it was like learning to paint all over again, as brush strokes became different, as well as discovering different types of textures that would work best.
In the end, it was worth the effort as I found new ways to create and the paintings were enjoyable to make.

Developing new ways to do things is sometimes the best option for many aspects of life.

Sometimes we cling to the old way of doing things because it is familiar to us, not necessarily always a good choice.
When we reach into our bag of options, which we often overlook, there is usually something peering out but ignored.
Trying something new can help develop that skill, it might be something you have never even consider in the past.
Now is always a great time to give another perspective a chance.  Its not always easy to take that first step into the unknown, in fact, it is often very scary.  But with out taking that step, there is no other way to find something new.
Taking time to develop a new skill, explore new concepts and ideas is one of the most amazing ways to increase your knowledge and understanding of life.
Trying something new is a great way to develop your own likes and dislikes, there is no age limit on trying something new.
If not now, when?
