Surprise! It's another update from the studio that involves my show! (It'll be over soon folks!) On my table this morning: a 2-foot by 3-foot canvas that'll feature five birds perched on a wire, watching the evening sun sink into the horizon.
Sometimes I'm not very confident about a piece, especially in the beginning stages. The pieces for this show (and my self-imposed time challenges) have helped me push past uncertainity and just keep going. I have to keep reminding myself not to judge until all the components of the canvas come together. If I just keep my fingers moving, my inner critic doesn't have as much opportunity to whisper mean comments in my ear. Speaking of which, tune in tomorrow for a post about the inner critic banishments I've been working on with my young students. Fun stuff!
