“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
So I’m having one of those ‘oh-my-god-I’m-really-doing-this’ nervous/ excited moments. It’s day two and I’ve committed myself to share 28 new paintings over the next 28 days, organize other artists participation and help organize and grand finale exhibition. Fear is standing right in my face. I’m hoping that the new work will meet my expectations, but am reminded that I’ve been down this road before, not too long ago and have confidence that I can make it to the finish line.
