ok...well, it hasn't worked out like I thought

*The road to hell is paved with good intentions* I think we can all remember this saying. My pencil has been quiet, sitting hidden in its tin box, waiting...waiting for the moment when it can come out and touch paper, to create a line....waiting.....waiting.....
You know, I don't know what it is. Fear of failure, which how egotistical is that, that I won't create anything unless it is perfect...I try to think, baby steps, learn by doing, learn by your mistakes, you only fail, if you fail to try. It is overwhelming to see the seemingly effortless work that is out there, beautiful work. It makes me wonder...was it like this for them, did they struggle or did they just push past it and did it? I have a new resolution, (I know)....but I guess I need to challenge myself to do this one thing everyday....good or bad...get over it, and just push today, is that day. Today I am thankful that I have the ability and the means, that I have no good reason not to, I have plenty of paper and pencils, and journals....standing, I say, the day.....! So what will be my challenge...hmmmmmm....

finished hummingbird

This is the finished hummer. Last class tomorrow. Don't know what I will start, because I will have to dive in and continue on my own. The class will resume after the first of the year, but with the winter months, and the constrants it causes with working I will probably not continue. I will continue to paint on my own...
