Ok, the title may be a bit cheesy…the “Tiptoe through the Tulips” song was going through my head as I went to post this. Some of you know what I’m talking about. I grew up surrounded by music…of all types. With that said, I decided to try this challenge for Rookie Painter using a different approach than I normally do. I set out to be looser with my brush strokes. I went through several stages of talking myself through the “oh, you’ve got to be kidding me” and “this stinks” to “chill out and hold on,” and “keep working.” Then it was “just let it dry and go back with oil pastels.” That’s the thing…working through the process of how I handle my own expectations and plans for the thing. It doesn’t always work out the way I hope it will, and I don’t always have the technical skills to pull it off the way I’d like. But, hopefully in the process I’ll learn something, grow and enjoy myself along the way. Sounds kinda like life. God’s blessings!
