Yesterday was my worst day of painting since I started attending my studio. Still it was quite an enjoyable day. Would this have been a year ago I would have slightely panicked. I was so afraid, so terrified of not being able to create something delightful. Now I am not afraid of painting ugly. (Like I did yesterday). I can just paint it over! No big deal!
Today I put a new color on top of an area I had painted previously. And the painting became beautiful! At the moment this is the painting that I like the best of the ones I've painted here. And I am playing casually with a few other boards.
Color has always been a mystery and a desire of mine. I feel I am more and more learning how to conquer them; those interresting combinations. What I do is - I look at pictures that inspire my color-fantasy. I get impulses this way - and it works really well.
