This painting is from photos I took way back in 2013 but I wasn't confident enough to try to paint from the images I got. Painting glass is more than a bit intimidating. There is a lot on information in a very small space. I had to also develop my patience level because it also takes quite a bit of time to properly and carefully capture all the abstract shapes in the glass.
Fear is a big part of what artists have to overcome. Fear can hold one back, not allow one to expand and develop. People are surprised to hear that I too feel fear. Sometimes it slows me down for a bit, but then I find a way to get beyond it. Mostly by asking myself "What is the worst thing that can happen?" The answer "the painting doesn't work!" Yes indeed it may not work but what harm does that have on me...none. Every painting I find that I continue to develop and learn. I have burned quite a few paintings that were not to the standard that I want in the world but as they burned I say "Thank you for what you taught me". :)
I would love to hear what you think of this painting. :) Thanks for stopping by.
