Going a New Direction or not...

I have been struggling with what I want to do with my creativity and have had a desire to rekindle my love of painting lately.  I spend a lot of time watching talented people on You Tube and can spend literally hours watching how people create.  In my younger years I always thought I wanted to become a painter.  Now I know that  everyone with a paint brush and paint can paint but to me a true artist is someone who steps back and feels some satisfaction from what is on their canvas is the true artist.  Each painting I do I hope that I get just a little sense of that from what I apply to what I am working on.  I think for the individual it is a life long quest.....

I want to mention that I have found a wonderful artist that shares what she does with others to try and bring that out in everyone.  I know that she has helped me rekindle that spark from years ago.

Go and watch her video and hopefully you will take a little self confidence and satisfaction with you if you take the plunge into painting!!!

Here is my attempt with The Night Garden

I did this on a sheet of Canson's Canvas Paper

Parts I am pleased with and others I need to work on.... I am ok with that because it is part of my journal with creativity!
