I like this quick study more than the last. I am in a funk, it is frustrating. I am having a hard time mentally getting back into the creative process and inspiration. Even though my paintings did well at the county fair, I am going through a phase where everything I have done looks bad to me. I am sure that, that is not totally true but the feeling is real. I think the inaction is killing me. The longer I do not act the stronger the anxiety. If anyone has tips for pushing through this, please let me know.
Also several people have been leaving comments in Japanese. Since I do not read Japanese, I am not allowing them to be posted to my blog. I am so sorry. I occasionally have a friend to translate but she is very busy and I do not want to over burden her. If you could try to post in English...I so want to know your ideas and am so sorry for the inconvenience.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
