Create: Letting Go Of The Fear

I have always wanted to paint however I do run into some complications.  

1.  My drawings consist of stick figures

2.  I want to be perfect and that stops me dead in my feet

3.  What I see in my mind does not come out the same on canvas

4.  I worry about what others will say about my work

5.  Fear

I give up before I even start.  Well that is going to change.  I am going to take a 12 x 12 canvas and work on it until it is done.  I'm not going to worry about it being perfect I'm going for fun and whimsey.   This is a test for me to let go and just have fun with painting.  I will be posting every week my progress and not be critical of my work, I will let go of the Fear.

One funny thing that happened I went up to my studio (which is located above the garage) to get my paints and I found out my paints are frozen.  I turned on the wall heater and started collecting my supplies.  My fingers were so cold they were hurting  I had a hard time picking up the bags where I am currently storing my rubber stamps.  After about 10 minutes I was finished and went to turn off the heat and there was barely any heat coming out yet.

Week One:  

No longer a blank canvas

Welcome to my journey and feel free to comment

Until Next Time,


  1. Enjoy your creativity Pam!

    The brush strokes in each corner have already caught my eye...can't wait to see what emerges on the canvas :)

  2. I always get the urge to be creative like that but don't have any products readily available. If you feel creative, bust it out!
