Can I Pull This Off?

page from my 2012 sketchbook

There is a whole lot of challenging going on over here. I painted every day last week. Non-stop. My goal was to finish 5 paintings. I finished 4. My paintings have been starting with concepts..things that I normally do not do..and I often found myself asking myself, "Can I pull this off?"

I quickly responded to that self doubt with a surprisingly calm, yes. Yes I can pull this off. That felt pretty great I have to admit.. I didn't throw in the towel at any point..I just kept painting. When things didn't go as planned, I fixed them. It's that confidence that has helped me along my path here...

Just wanted to share my somewhat break-through moment here with you. Thank you for coming by and giving me the encouragement to keep painting.
