This is what's on my "easel" today...
Well, okay, on the floor today.
See my feet down there, bottom left corner? That's a big white space to fill.
Seven feet by four feet to be exact. OMG!
Somewhere, somehow, either the planets have made a spectacular shift or I have managed to completely reprogram my molecules - or both. Because without hesitating for even a second, I signed up for this fundraiser:

There were none of the usually loud and obnoxious inner critics telling me things like, "Who do you think you are?" or "Are you kidding? You've hardly been painting that long!" or "Surely there are plenty of other local artists that should be getting that big piece of paper rather than you?"
Nope. None of that.
Just this joyful, gleeful excitement of "Oh, wow, that would be SO much fun to do, I think I'll do it!"
I am not just pushing forward fearlessly (doing despite the fear) - oh no - this time? There WAS no fear!
I'm kinda in shock over here. Just so you know.
But am I worried about that lack of fear? Missing it? Wishing I could just continue living life vicariously through others?
You gotta be kidding me.
Can I get a big WOO HOO!!
Did you know that a piece of paper that big takes up a LOT of gesso. It does.
And did you know that I'm going to need to invest in a LOT more paint. Oh darn.
So. Here's what's on my easel today:
Can't wait to show you how it progresses!
Celebrating big steps, big dreams, and BIG PAPER over here today!!
Thanks everyone for being part of it!
