on wednesday i went back to
oil painting classes
here is a peek into the freshly repainted studio
(yes it is the cutest studio on earth!)
studio photo by Roz
last year i had these paintings in progress.
i finished the figs early december,
(will show you next week)
so i got back to my birches
well did i fight and resist and sweat over those birches...
i felt rusty, unsure and horribly frustrated.
thanks to Roz's gentle (and firm) guidance,
something finally clicked into place
about half an hour before the end of the class
i found my creative groove!
this is where i left off.
far from finished but it's all making more sense now.
as i walked out the world looked brighter...
persistence, perseverance, stamina.
i didn't expect those ingredients
to play such a big part in the creative journey.
