After the crop, relief and satisfaction came. (I feel the same way about a new hairstyle. :) )
Beyond All Boundaries started to come to life and I felt as if the pencils knew just where to go without my assistance. I became excited about the near birth of this painting!
I have been told by a dear friend to learn to trust yourself. Thank you dear friend!! As I become more comfortable with my decisions I am becoming more confident with them as well.
I used to think art was just about creating, but I'm understanding it's about my life, taking on new challenges and winning them. My paintings are becoming the pages of the diary of my life. As I look back at each piece I can remember what time of year it was and what struggles, challenges and accomplishments I have made. Hence, my latest and newest piece Beyond All Boundaries.
I wish all those who entered the competition the best of luck!
Thank you all for reading.
