I think I’m not alone here. Sometimes you have a project you’re so stuck with it’s ridiculous. More often than not they are the most precious to us, which can be rather paralysing.
I started this portrait of the one I love ages ago. It went really well at first and I was so happy. Until I slipped up and pushed too hard on the charcoal. This was nine months ago. I was torn between starting over and taking it in a whole new direction. Which means some touch ups and being brave bringing new media in. The last part was the problem.
What if I screw it up? What if I can never pull it off again? What if I just let it be? What if, what if, what if… what if I just go for it and do what my gut told me to do nine months ago? Sometimes we need to give ourself the finger and just go for it. We want to make pieces that we’re in love it and if we’re not there yet, we need to keep on going. Now, let’s put my money where my mouth is. Wish me luck you guys and if you have one of those pesky impossible art tasks… well… you know what to do. 😉
