Cosmetic Bag

This is a quick little study that I did yesterday.  It is 6x8 inches on a Raymar canvas panel.  I was reading something wonderful yesterday in my Cloth, Paper Scissors Magazine and I will share it with you because I think that it affects all of us in  way.  This woman, Carolyn Dube, who creates wonderful mixed media art spoke about the defeating chatter that lingers in our mind.  I seem to struggle with this a lot and that was one of the things that I wanted to tackle the most with this last e-course.  Sometimes I want to paint so badly and the only thing I can do is to sit and look at my paints and then the indecision sets in.  Well, I am working on that in a big way!   I have decided to just tackle painting things and challenge myself to paint things that I never would have tried to paint before.  I am working at staying loose and not prejudging my efforts.  I am not even going to look back because I am on a forward track!  Do you ever buy supplies thinking of all the wonderful things that you can do with them and then there they sit months later without being touched?  Uh huh....that is something that annoys me a lot.  So I am going to dust off the pastels, the house paint, the paint sticks, the gouache, the watercolors and get right at it!!!
