I'll spare you the gritty details but pretty much, I'm not enjoying it most of the time and I'm questioning the notion that I was ever a good painter in the first place. This is a combination of disliking my teachers, comparing myself to other artists in the classes, not liking much of what I paint and much more. I've been praying alot about it and hoping that if I don't learn anything in the classes themselves, I at least get the lesson that God wants me to learn from this frustrating situation (perhaps...pride goes before the fall??).
With that said, I'd like to share a few sneak peeks at the paintings I've been working on. Some of these are paintings I loathe and some I love. Some are just small parts of the whole painting and others are the entire painting. Honestly, it's hard for me to put these up here (especially because they are not finished and in different stages) but I do want to share with everyone what I've been up to the past few weeks.
Please pray for me as I struggle through this. There's a lot more to it than I'm sharing right now and I wish that my husband was here to bounce ideas off of, pray with me and encourage me. (He's doing a good job through email... but it's not quite the same!)
