I started a new painting this week but it took me hours to finally make the first brushstrokes on the canvas. What is it about a blank canvas that makes it so hard to start a new painting? Instead, I procrastinated by updating my email list, entering some exhibition competitions, updating my website and online galleries, plus spending hours viewing other artist’s blogs and Pinterest accounts. I finally bit the bullet and made my very first strokes of juicy paint on the wet panel letting the paint run down freely. Stay tuned for more.
