In my post Autumn Reflections on Bravery, I took the bold step of posting a painting that didn't come out quite as I had hoped. I feel vulnerable sharing artwork because I am just learning. Yet, that's what requires bravery, and I am committed to this path.
Therefore, onward I go! I'd like to share a couple paintings inspired by the one in that posting. These are notecards that I will soon send to some dear friends:
Visually, I like these better than the first pumpkin painting. However, I feel great gratitude to that first poor child. It is very dear to me!
Speaking of that baby, it landed in my art journal, and now looks like this:
Not so bad after all! It just needed a good home. (But to continue the theme on overcoming perfectionism, I can't figure out how to publish pictures properly--this picture insists on being posted twice!)
