I am so grateful to you all, my dear blog readers. You provide me with such strong support and feedback. I would be lost without all of you!!! Thank you for reading my blog, for your comments, and for just being there. I would have given this blog up long ago, were it not for all of you. I had so much fun with my last giveaway, that I have decided to have another one this week. Stay tuned...
I finished my third acrylic painting this afternoon. I am planning to enter it in a juried show this weekend, along with another painting I did of the beavertail cactus in bloom. (The show is for "cactus - themed art".) This new painting measures 9 x 12 inches and it is acrylic on board. I am rather attached to it, at the moment, which probably means I just need to paint another one, right? Right.
From The War of Art: "Henry Fonda was still throwing up before each stage performance, even when he was seventy-five. In other words, fear doesn't go away. The warrior and the artist live by the same code of necessity, which dictates that the battle must be fought anew every day." -Steven Pressfield
