I believe it! I really do...

I just love this picture of this little girl. This is in the watercolor journal with a few textures
added. I just stuck her in at the last minute and it worked for me. I am actually feeling a bit better today. I have spent the last few days arranging all of the supplies for the conference this weekend and I think that I am about ready. I made a notebook for my notes and organized with labels. That is unusual for me. I usually just throw it all in and hope for the best.

I opened this one up big to see all the wonderful texturing going on--it really does work! And that picture, oh my word what a find that is, I can see we would all be using her image she so captures the artist angst
All that extra prep for this conference just shows how important it's going to be to you. Have a wonderful time, I know your going to come home pumped!

Marthy, don't we all know that feeling so well!!

I keep telling myself, how will I ever learn if I don't keep playing!!

And really when we create something we don't like it's not failure. It's a stepping stone. We learned that something did not work.

Perhaps artists only fail when they fail to see the True Beauty within themselves...

All of your art is so amazing to me. Even when you aren't so happy with a background I find it inspiring with it's colors and textures. Thank you for sharing...
