Day 7 of the painting challenge and I am quite pleased with it. I took this photo at my neighbors cabin and have wanted to paint it for awhile. Somehow I just never had the desire until this morning. Sometimes I have tons of photos that I look at and look at and then one day the urge just strikes and today was that day.
Some of the artists that are participating in this challenge are sharing a bit about themselves with this and I have not, mostly because of time. Today I share.
When I started painting in 2009 I was terrified to touch the canvas with a paintbrush loaded with paint. It was so scary for me to put myself out there but I did it, hand shaking like a leaf. I have never looked back. It has given me much more than an outlet for sanity it has given me courage and confidence that I have been lacking most of my life, especially my young life. I always described myself as a wallflower in high school and now I'm a bold flower, bursting with joy and confidence and ATTITUDE! I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I am right now.
