Forward Steps

I've been doing a bit of soul searching lately.

Searching for the real artist I think I should be.

Not trying to fit a mold to be accepted.

Just be me.

A saw a glimpse of her here...


Instead of trying so hard not to be detailed, I just painted in a way that felt good.

Today I decided to try again.


I painted all day.


Into the night.



The photo is bad but I'm pleased with the way she turned out.

And she's completely me.

Looking forward to 2010.

Wow! She is brilliant!
it's hard to let go and paint how you feel. I think it is the hardest thing to do, to be truly authentic. I know I will have to at some point, try and let go of my need to control a painting, and see what happens

I really, really, REALLY like her.

I think sometimes we do try too hard to follow a path that we feel is right, but that just isn't comfortable to us. I'm glad that you have discovered your comfort zone. I'm still looking - like you, I've tried to simplify, but
it seems to cause me more angst than it is worth.
