As Cézanne matured, he exposed his canvas.

We age.  We evolve.  Do we shed the layers?  It is easy to slap on the extra paint, year after year, and hide behind it.

Weaknesses can be beautiful.   After all, a person can love someone else for their vulnerability as much as their strength.

“What you can’t do is sometimes more compelling than what you can.”  -The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank

Your biggest imperfection may be your new source of joy. Lighten the brush strokes and lose the layers.  Expose yourself.
