"love is falling all around us"
mixed media on 8x10 canvas board
Happy Paint Party Friday! I was looking through all of my art photos the other day and I found this painting I did last year. I wanted to share it today because it reminds me of how I painted before I became worried about "How" to paint.
She started out as a sketch, and the scene came to life when I put her on canvas. I really had fun creating this. I used burnt sienna and yellow for the background and love the heart tree. As you know I am a sucker for hearts! lol
What I have been struggling with lately is trying to achieve perfection in my art. And the pressure I put on myself actually keeps me away from creating. Sometimes I just want to create cute pretty things like her. And so what if it isn't fine art, it makes me happy and hopefully will inspire others.
I just started taking "She Art" with Christy Tomlinson. I really think it will inspire me to get back to the simple, fun, girls I used to create. I am enjoying the class so far!
Have you felt this way about your art? How do you deal with it?
Don't forget to check out all the great art being shared this week over at the PPF blog!!
