I worked on the bird/woman painting tonight! I got honest with myself and admitted that I was finding other things to do instead of starting on it. It's been awhile since I've done a portrait and I was getting a wee bit nervous. But then I was reading the interview I did on Huckleberry Bumpkin's blog and my quote got me:
“When my doubts about my art surface, I can let them paralyze me or I can push past it and continue to create.“
LOL! Convicted by my own words! I hate that! I decided it was time to push past those doubts and fears. :) One thing I've found helps me when I get like this is to pick one thing, one tiny, simple thing and do it. For instance, tonight I decided to mix up the paint for the skin tones. I have a little recipe from a previous art class that I like and it's all mapped out for me. I thought that was non-threatening enough yet it was a step forward.
