"Upsy Daisy Steps"
Mixed Media, 10" x 10"- watercolor, paper on bristol vellum,
Have you ever read some of Kelly Rae's blog archives? I so enjoyed going back to her earlier posts to see where she came from artistically and creatively. I blog about this because it gives me hope. In the beginning, she posts all her happy paintings. And you see them getting better and better each time. She's just happy and grateful to be able to create. She's so positive and upbeat, and I think that's what attracted me to her blog in the first place.
Let me confess unlike Kelly, I agonize over my paintings. I throw away two for every one I keep or post. I cry when I just can't get it. I would cut my ear off if I could!
So today, I decided I'm going to be more forgiving of myself. I'm going to try to enjoy the process and not focus so on the outcome, as my flyer friend, Kat posts in "The means or the end".....the process, the means, is probably more important ...the end is not the purpose of the creative process, the means is".
So, I am posting "Upsy Daisy Steps", a tough "means" painting. I happened to see it again in the drawer and thought what was wrong with this one? Don't remember.
Someday, maybe someone else will look back at our earlier posts and be inspired, too!
