I have been taking another painting class- this time acrylic- and I am learning all kinds of
fabulous things about myself! For example, I do not take risks, I am sometimes paralyzed by indecision, I am afraid of making a mistake, I focus too much on the end result instead of the process, I don’t enjoy playing in the mud (because of the inevitable clean up- duh!), and I am a perfectionist and maybe even a control freak. Awesome. Luckily I have a wonderfully patient teacher who loves the challenge… of me.
Painting is not easy for me but I am starting to make some headway. Often either with my clients’ homes or my own home, I know what kind of artwork I’d like to see in the space but I have trouble actually finding it- and in the correct dimensions. I thought it would save time and money if I could just create it myself. Easier said than done 🙂
I recently finished a piece I hoped would complete my daughter’s bedroom (picture above). It was nerve-wracking waiting for her to see it. I really wanted her to love it. I watched her eyes when I showed it to her and she gleamed! I felt so proud and happy!
Then Adam suggested hanging the one below in our bathroom. I would choose something larger but I have to admit it does add something to the room. I’m going to have to buy some more canvases this week!
