My decision to participate in Ilustration Friday each week came with a lot of "lack of self-confidence" in my work and my abilities. Working alone as an illustrator without peers who can help guide or give you that extra "yep, that's looking better" can put you into a place of "it's not good enough, yet." And so, this is how I've felt about my work for so long...never ready for the world to see.
So, this blog, and most importantly, feedback from all of you, has definitely given me the courage and confidence needed to get on with my quest. I am more determined now to persevere, practice, practice, practice, paint and paint more and try new things without worrying about the end result so much, and keep on going....you're all helping me to do this, so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, sincerely. And I do hope that you'll keep popping in now and again - I will keep visiting all of you! : ) Happy creating, everyone!
