BIG Has Begun

Oh My Goodness! BIG has begun. It's fun so far. These first assignments are easy in one sense but in another it's like damn this is hard! Especially when my life long pal "FEAR" shows up. And let me tell ya...Fear just doesn't know when to shut up. I've not verbally confronted my pal yet, but it's coming! Right now I'm just choosing to ignore those voices and keep on doing the assignments. Painting 2 or 3 of each one. I'm on assignment 2 right now, and I like it best...at the moment.

This week is all about painting, painting BIG, painting FEARLESS. It's about turning off that inner critic, telling Fear to take a hike. For me, those are no easy tasks.

I don't know if I want to move on to assignment 3 yet or play around with 1 and 2 some more. I just know I'm falling in love with Liquitex paints. I bought some Artist's Loft ones. Both are consider Basics or Level 1 paints. It's only a dollar difference between the 2 brands but I can honestly say I won't mind paying the extra buck for Liquitex. It goes on and spreads much, much smoother than the Artist's Loft brand. Which I am finding doesn't like to move too well even when I add a medium to it or even some water.

Well, this one's almost dry...soon time to start another...YAY!
