An Exciting Revelation!!

How in the world did I left all of September go by without a single blog update...  How??
Honest...I get to my studio, almost daily, its the posting that never makes it out of my thoughts!!
I have had a revelation though, as it relates to my serious fear/frustration of painting on a canvas...
I have been beating myself up about not workin on canvas because somehow, I felt that once I started, I had to finish in the sitting...crazy I know, but that was just stuck in my head...Start today, finish with a bang...today!!!
I was druving myself nuts with "the pressure", then, it just dawned on me...I don't have to have all of the ideas ready and done in one sitting...kudos if I do...but a canvas can take weeks, right???
So, heres a start
Its a start, and it now sits on my easel to wait as I take some time to let it grow...and figure out what needs to happen next...sure is a lot less frustration that way...
It may completely change by the time Im done with it, but I'm totally ok with that...
Until next time,
Ophelia

Love your journal pages and YES take your time with the canvas! I love the colors you have used so far on it.

What a great breakthrough! I too have large canvas anxiety so I can relate. I love the start you gotten, wonderful colors.

And thank you for the sweet comment that I just saw - I'm definitely having fun!

Time slips far too fast, that's how September got away from you! Thanks so much for dropping by my little spot in the blog-o-sphere, I hope you'll consider joining the ATC swap!

And, that canvas is going to be so much fun, I can already tell!!!
