12" x 16" Oil on Canvas Board
I received a wonderful comment yesterday from an artist whose work I truly admire! He gave me such great encouragement, and helped me to relax, and not worry so much about my "style". I guess it's really easy to get all caught up in "art" and forget that it's all about having FUN!
I did this same thing when I started quilting. Worrying that my quilts wouldn't look as good as someone else's -- worrying that I wasn't trying to do really hard things to prove myself (after all, I do own a Quilt Shop!! - I should know it all!!).
So, for my next trick, I will take deep breaths, smile a lot, and remember that it's only paint!
And, be happy that my dear daughter came through with several beautiful photos of the Monterey coastline for me to paint! Can't wait!
