There was one University Lecturer I had, who used to inspire me (and made me laugh!), and I will always remember what he called “mistakes.”
He said they were “Happy Accidents” and that often these “accidents” resulted in a better finished piece of work. They made an artist think outside the square, and be truly resourceful and creative.
He also said: “Lily, if you fuck up, make a feature of it!”
I’m now passing his wisdom on!!!!
