Works in Progress

Hey everyone!

I’m finally getting back into painting in acrylics again. I’m forever fascinated by landscapes so I figure I will try out a few. I also did a little sunflower piece too.

Just getting back into it, practice makes perfect, right?

It’s good to just do some little studies, because my real plan is to make some large paintings for the house. We’ve had our house for 8 years now and still there are some bare walls. Every time I go to places that sell decorations and I get to the prints/paintings section, I think that I can do these much better. So why haven’t I done anything? (with the exception of a few paintings I did a couple years ago) Am I being lazy? I think it’s just fear of hating what I paint. It’s fear of the unknown, maybe? Also, finding the time seems to be difficult. My husband has been wonderful- encouraging me to paint all the time. But I keep doing other tasks, making this a lower priority.

It’s time to put creativity into a higher bracket. Being creative really is a gift that we all have as humans, why don’t we shine like we’re supposed to?

Anyway, I hope everyone has a beautiful and happy holiday season!!!
