On A More Positive Note

Anyone who knows me is aware that for me to be down and/or to beat up on myself is a rare thing. So, now that I've exposed my raw, insecure self, I have a more positive post.

I decided to get right to work on something new, so I put out on my palette (piece of waxed paper) three shades of green and took out a detail brush to practice the point, squish, draw to make a leaf that I watched Sue do effortlessly yesterday. I tried several times with similar results. This is going to require lots of practice.

So instead of getting frustrated, I turned my attempt into a silly little drawing that I will share with you now.

I rather like her and her green hair!

I also took apart the wax collage I tried a couple of days ago and am going to try something else with it. I will post when I decide what it is to be.

More tomorrow........


  1. I love how you turned your frustration into this sweet art piece!
