Chicken Stoop

12 x 12 Oil on Canvas

I haven't commented about the commitment thing lately, so here is the latest.  Before I began this little 100 painting quest I so worried about it, fearing the worst,  like I would have to force myself to do it (oh how I hate to be told what to do, don't you?) and so I thought this terrible little voice in me would be constantly scolding me, cracking the whip, brow beating me to get my "work" done ~ au contraire ~  it is so not like that at all.  Instead of feeling pushed and forced to paint, I feel pulled and inspired to paint, even a little bummed if I don't get to it some days.  Someone once said , probably someone famous (I'm not good with names) "the way to get over fear is by taking action", it is so, so true.

  1. Amy, Nothing to fear here, your painting looks beautiful! I think that Marsha Sinetar, said,
    "Feel the fear, and do it anyway". I am not too good with names either. Eleanor Roosevelt said, the only way to overcome our fears is to do what we fear most, or something like that. Churchill said, "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself". So much for fear. I know what you mean about missing painting, I am out of town now and haven't painted since Sat.,Ugh! I miss painting too, when I don't do it. Enjoy!
