I've been feeling the urge to challenge myself.
To learn more about who I am as an artist and what I am capable of.
To take more steps out of my comfort zones.
That's when I happen to come across this on-line workshop by Jeanne Oliver
It spoke to me.
I am excited to "paint my story".
I've watched several of the videos-I couldn't wait to dive right in.
Still in my nightgown, I cranked up the music (really loud to drown out my inner critic).
I stood up to my easel, charcoal in my hand, and I began.
The intention of this practice was to draw and see what shows up.
I used a charcoal stick and gesso in my journal.
About 75 minutes later she arrived. Imperfection and all.
Titled: "Vulnerable yet standing".
