What a Difference a Year Makes
I cannot believe it was a year ago this week that I painted my first abstract painting. I actually painted thirty abstracts last January in the 30 in 30 Paintings Challenge. I was even scared. What if I failed? What if I embarrassed myself? I struggled and created some pretty pathetic abstracts in early January of 2015. I kind of laugh about it now. My failures pushed me to paint and practice more. Being scared can be a good thing. I think it keeps you motivated and helps you stay on track.
The good news is that in less than a year I have made a lot of progress! I fine tuned my painting process, established a fun way to paint abstract commissions and developed a great client base of interior designers and clients. I am also offering online abstract classes and three day abstract painting workshops. I can't believe how lucky I am. And truly ... what a difference a year makes.
When was the last time you tried something new? The new year might be a good time to branch out and try something new. I talked for years about painting abstracts and finally took the plunge. What is it that you would like to try that's new and different with your art?
