I have nothing new to share, but thought I could at least dig something up from the past, 1995 that is. I found this buried in the rubble, of what is supposed to be my studio, but is mostly just piles, heaps, and mountains of junk (re: untapped art supplies). My hubby complains, and rightly so I suppose, because I have a great number of sketchbooks all with just one or two pages started. Which brings me to my main topic, fear. Lately I have been trying to conquer FEAR and possibly complete an entire sketchbook or finish a darn painting, but I'm finding that simply declaring myself "brave" has not shut up that pesky inner-critic. The ideas and drawings flow effortlessly but as soon as I pick up a brush....the door SLAMS shut. I'm not good enough. I am trying to heed the great philosopher Dory and "Just keep swimming", but DANG its hard! So how do you keep going?
Note: I want to add that I drew these by looking at a fieldguide or something, I wish I could credit the source but it was 16 years ago and I don't remember
