still painting

Although I was feeling a little bit discouraged about painting the other day, I haven't given up on it. There have been quite a few "oh crap" (ok, stronger than that) moments, but I just remained calm and kept going. I'm getting pretty good at inner pep talks. Perhaps it might feel silly to say things like, "it's ok, you can do it," in your head, but I think it really works. Better than listening to those nasty inner critics (which also works... but not in a good way).

I've been obsessively painting roses. I think I was a little scared of painting roses before this. I'd tried it a few times and had never been 100% happy with the results. This time was so much fun. And I like how my paintings turned out.






I even added them both to my shop today along with two of the purses I made for the craft fair.

I hope you're having a wonderful week.
