This week has been a week of intense lows and intense highs for my art journey. Throwing in the towel was on my mind most of the week. Although I planned on doing blind contour drawing this week, I ended up painting most of the time. And, I have very little to show for it! I was inspired to send in some of my work for a very important exhibition and that was foremost on my mind. Sitting in front of the painting I finished, I realized that I have very, very far to go! I hit a dark, low point! Am I an artist? Why can’t I put on the canvas what is in my head? Not a good place to be in when stressing over an upcoming deadline! So, I started over – and was still not happy! Here is the painting (but, I might just start over again!!)
The high point of my entire art journey was attending an art “walk-through” at a gallery near me. I met the artist Andre du Toit. What an inspiring day! I was close to tears most of the time – I absolutely love this man’s work.
Here is an example of his work:
I am still not sure if I will send in any of my work for the exhibition, but I am more intent than ever to be the artist that I believe I was born to be.
So, keep posted for more of my journey!
