I've been a busy bee since returning from exhibiting at Blueprint this May, but finally I managed to get back to unwinding in my happy place: painting. Last night I pulled out my paints and brushes, a selection of sketchbooks and papers, then without rhyme or reason, I mixed and painted to my hearts content. No plan, no rules, just paint therapy....bliss!
By now I know myself and my workflow well enough to anticipate and conquer my inner self doubt monster. I simply remind myself to trust the process, it may look worse before it looks better, but finished is better than perfect.
