Latest Painting

This is the latest face I have been working on. I am not sure if its finished yet. I think I will just let it sit for awhile and then decide. My newest goal is to stop apologizing for my Art. Normally I would go on and on about how I think there is something wrong with it but no more. I don't think that serves us as artists at all. I know it won't be easy but I am going to try and stop doing that.

I was such in a painting mode that I thought I would tackle an older painting that I have been unhappy with. After slopping paint all over the sucker I decided that it just wasn't going to work. I am in the process of putting gesso over it and beginning again. This actually felt good to do this. It needs several coats so later today I may have a surface I can work on. I think I really learned a lot working on the painting shown above so I am ready to do another right away.

Yay for you! That not apologizing thing is hard for me, too--

I see you're signed up for NaNoWriMo--I'm excited for it to start!

by the way, I love the face. She looks very pensive, as if she's looking far into the future.

I love the coloring in her face, the cheeks, looks so real.
Yes, lets hear it for NO APOLGIES.
Just creating and sharing, and getting better and better...growing...learning...and lets not forget having fun in the process.

you are right. No apologies is a good way to be. Just do the work, show it or not and continue onward.
