Sometimes it' is so difficult to step out of the the habits
you've set for yourself. It's easier to just stick with what
you've been doing rather than take even the small step
to try something new which may bring you to a whole
I've been painting small for a long time and just the simple
step of getting out big paper seemed like an insurmountable
problem. I thought about how for a long time, months really..
I didn't know what to paint, I didn't know what colors, I
had so many excuses..
I finally decided to pare down the issue to the basics,
I picked the paper I would use and laid it out. I gave
myself the directive of just black or white paint, big
paintbrushes, and 15 minutes a day on the timer. I went
outside and chose a few lingering plants from the garden
and made sure all of my supplies were ready to go.I put
the plan into my calendar so I had no choice.
This process of breaking it down for me was so great.. I'm
planning on continuing these for these for a while until I'm
ready to add more to the directive. The goal is to loosen up
and play more but having the boundaries makes it so much easier.
