Going on

The most important painting tip I've learned over the years is "Keep Going."  I am telling myself to keep going a lot with this new painting I've started.  I wanted to paint something different, something I've never painted before.  I decided on a desert tortoise.  I found wonderful reference material.  I can see the finished painting in my head and I am must be growing as a artist because I have to keep telling myself to "Keep Going!"

I guess it's been awhile since I felt like a novice.  After the last painting I felt so accomplished even smug.  There was so much work and detail in "Cougar Ledge" and I never felt like I had to figure out how to paint something. Rocks were rocks and cats were cats and that's what I painted.

I will learn how to paint something new. I will figure out how to paint tortoise hide. I will not get mad at myself when painting doesn't come easy.  I will "Keep Going" again.
