Painting again

Okay, I don't know what happened to blogging. I think about it every day ... but I have been in catch up mode for months. I wish I had a more organized mind and house and family and life. hah! I envy those who are on top of everything.

Well, anyway, with all things going on, I have been fitting in a bit of  and mixed media-ing and taking e-courses. I would like to write about it all, but just thinking about it is so overwhelming ... I guess that is why I have been procrastinating for so long. So one thing at a time ...

Currently I'm taking Flora Bowley's e-course Bloom True. What can I say? I love it!
She has a wonderful take on painting. I have always been bad when it comes to painting something specific. I get in with an idea in my head, I start the painting, then I stall, because I let fear in. Fear that it's not going to be what I envisioned.

Flora's technique is organic. It lets me follow my heart, not my brain. It really feels good as I don't feel the demand that it has to be a certain way.

Here is the start of my paintings:



I look forward to painting every day :)
