I absolutely love this time of year. It is quiet and restful. Time feels plentiful. And so, I am beginning a new body of work. This was my intention at this time last year. I painted very little last January and then almost nothing the rest of the year. In October I entered one of my small efforts into a juried show and was awarded "best of show." I'm sure I would have stayed the course if I had known my work was meritable. My struggle comes from not being able to judge my own work, but maybe more so from not trusting my instinct.
