I’ve been in a funk with my painting. Wanting to paint, but feeling like my ideas are flat and boring. So I decided to join the Creative Every Day challenge. It’s a no stress, low pressure challenge. You don’t have to post every day either. I just thought I needed a little jump start to help me get the paints out.
The theme for this month is dream. It’s a good theme I know I can work with. I pulled out the old painting above to paint over, but ended up reworking it instead. It doesn’t really go with the dream theme, but I like the piece a little better. The old version was tossed on the shelf face down a year ago. I found it too dark and I didn’t like her face. This one I don’t mind too much. It’s a little softer and more spring-like to me. I am hyper critical of my paintings. If I look at them too long, all I can see are the flaws. I am trying to be less critical.
I did start on a dream painting that I will hopefully be sharing soon.
