Here is what I worked on this weekend. I have been reading Kelly Rae Roberts new book Taking Flight. I have always wanted to paint pretty little girls. But for some reason I had it in my head that I could not do it. Why does our inner critic sabotage us in this way? The funny thing is that I have always been a doodler. Do you know what I doodled most of the time?? Eyes, lips and heads LOL. I would just cover a piece of paper with eyes, lips and heads. BUT I just kept telling myself I could not paint and blend well enough to actually do one of these little girl pictures.
I have to tell you that I read the first chapter of Kelly's book and worked on a piece in my journal. I was very happy with the way it turned out. I have done three now and I really don't know if I ever would have gotten around to it if I hadn't read Kelly's book. Yes I finished the book and I keep going back to reread chapters.
Here is what I completed this weekend. It is done on a piece of 6 x 6 wood. I put wire on it and it is hanging on the corner of my desk. My batteries are dead so I can't take a pic but here it is scanned before I put the hanger on.
Thanks for stopping by!
