I have used this painting again today even though I had it on here not so long ago. On my other blog I have been talking about change for the last two days. Today I was linking change with the fear of failure. Rightly or wrongly I think they are connected.
While writing this morning I was very aware that I have painted very little for the last few weeks. That in fact I have stepped back from doing anything with paint. I have made all sorts of excuses the biggest one that I need to get back to my fitness level and lose the extra weight I had put on. Both are fact but both are also, I now realise smokescreens.
I took a step with painting where I got ambitious, maybe even over confident. I produced this painting and one or two others in a similar way. I really liked them.
The trouble is; nobody else seems to. They are taking up hanging space and not selling. I have been afraid to admit failure and learn.
I painted this using all sorts of different methods of using texture. It did not work.
Maybe it is time to think again and get back to just paint.
Time for change. Once I get one or two other things sorted I will take the plunge.
