Mixed Media Artist

I’ve been feeling rather joyless lately about my art.  Not for very long, just a few days but none the less, I started to think about why this last year I have been able to find such joy in painting. So much so that I couldn’t wait to get back to it.   It has not always been like that.  I used to torture myself throughout the process of doing a painting.  I really never found much joy in the process, only the result.  These last few days, I have been feeling like that again and it all has to do with that nasty old ego.  It has stepped in and is trying to take over.

“Go away ego, I will continue to paint for the joy of it and if someone likes it along the way then that is just the icing.”

I did these two ACEOs tonight and it was fun. So there.
