This painting has been a real learning Curve for me !!....


I dont know about you guys but sometimes when we get stuck in a rut we think RIGHT I'M GONNA DO ..... and that is sorta what has happened to me with this painting !! mmmm A RUT well thats probably not the right word .....really ... ummmm

I dont know ....its like Why do some things that people say Stick in our Minds ?????


and Why is it always the negative comments that are the ones we seem to remember ??


And Why do we care so much about what others say??

I got it into my head that I needed to change my style of painting .... due to a comment made to me from nearly a complete stranger ! !

And thats when the problems started ...... I started this painting and was really enjoying it.... but then that comments kept comming back like an echo in the wind.....I started painting from my head rather than my heart !! to try and make this painting different from my style ! the more I did this the more I kept getting off track and getting more unhappy...... at one point I was going to throw in the towel !!

AND THEN THE PENNY DROPPED !!!


1 week later , it just dawned on me, DONNA WHY DO YOU PAINT ?


I paint because I have no Choice !! I need to paint! I want to paint ! Thats one way in which I express myself without using words or gestures !!


I paint from my heart , I paint what is.. and how I feel !!


I dont paint what I think people will buy (although that would be great if I could )!! hehe... So therefore why change my style because of one persons comment ! No doubt, over time my style will change it will evolve but isnt that what we do everyday as people ?

So sorry boy am I rambling tonight .... so as you check out this painting it is finally finished and Sorry to the people that liked where I was going with it !! but at this stage that just wasn't me.....


LIFE IS SO HETIC AND BUSY WE NEED TO STOP SOMETIMES AND SMELL THE ROSES !


NOT TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY OR DO BUT TO BE TRUE TO OURSELVES !!


Hey thanks for listening hehe


Take care Cheers Donna :)
