|'Promise' - watercolour - sold|
Love and respect yourself first. Try and explore what's right for you... thrill yourself with new discoveries... let yourself dive into the abyss of the unknown...you might 'thunder in'(my hubby's old paratrooper expression for when your chute doesn't open) dreadfully....or you might get to a new level of understanding, and do something that really rocks your boat! That is success in painting. Rocking your own boat. My mother always told me "Don't give your energy to people who make you feel bad"...turns out it's valid advice about painting for others expectations as well.(the ones who don't paint)
When you're learning painting, you have to give up the fear of failure...I mean really, why would you want to hold onto it anyway? It's a mean girl. It makes you feel bad, like you cant do anything. Listen to your heart. It wants you to come out and play.
...On another note, I'm delighted to report that my Thursday morning and afternoon Time to Paint classes are now nearly full. One place left in each of them.
