Chaos and bravery
My desk drawer broke. I found this handsome man looking for a solution.
He found one! But I have to wait a whole day for the wood glue to dry.
So I have one more day before I have to clean up this mess. Really most of the mess on my desk goes elsewhere, but with stuff scattered on my floor, maneuvering is a challenge. Yes, that’s an excuse.
I’ve been admiring so many beautiful paintings lately. Jul at Flogging the Muse uses such rich color. Love it! And I am ever an admirer of Leah’s paintings. I see a story in each one. They inspire me to bravery. You see, I’ve never taken a formal drawing or painting class. Most of my art is collage and color. But I do want to learn.
My brave painting today was done quickly. I did not want to dwell on the details, but to just paint without judging my own work. Maybe I should have closed my eyes.
Although she is rough, I am rather fond of her because she represents a step forward. I don’t want to allow what I lack to keep me from gaining what I desire. I can’t gain experience unless I’m willing go in to uncharted territory.
To better my skills, I’ve decided to take one of Sharon Tomlinson’s online workshops. I’m wavering between Faces in Technicolor and Faces: All Norah’s. Anyone with experiential advice? Anyone want to step into bravery with me?
