well, I said all year that this would be the one that I start painting again, and so finally I am going to. I bought an easel last week, and I have all the gear I need, from brushes to paints to canvas to pallete, and everything else. I have some ideas. I don’t know what has been holding me back. I’m sure it’s a fear of failure. A fear that I won’t be as good a painter as I once was (like 10 years ago). After work I’m going home and I’m going to start painting and see what happens.
