Last year my goals were all about big, bold flower paintings using acrylic paint.
Then in December 2018 I switched to oil paint and decided I wanted to try still life subjects on smaller canvases.
I can feel the shift. My output has slowed down and I find painting more stressful than relaxing. The learning curve is real. Suddenly my goals that were so clearly defined have become a big foggy mess. So I’ve decided to be kind to myself. I have two, possibly three painting workshops to attend for February and March. I’ll attend these and then reassess at the beginning of April. I’ll still paint when I feel it’s a joy rather than a chore, and in the meantime, I’m cleaning up my website. In the past whenever I work on my website my painting falls behind and vice-versa so this feels like a good time to switch gears.
