This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 9/10/2016:
I’ve always had this vision of myself painting huge canvases, but for months I’ve been too afraid of “messing up.” Too afraid of not knowing what I want my process to be or what I want my voice to say. And then this past week I read something I wrote in a blog post: “The only way to get over my fear of not knowing where to start was to start anyway.” MY OWN WORDS, you guys. It was the kick I needed to finally push my fear aside and embrace joy and curiosity and experimentation instead. I dipped my toe into the world of acrylic painting over a year ago and I’ve been playing in the shallow end ever since. There’s nothing wrong with the shallow end of course — it’s fun and it’s safe. But the deep end is where all the mystery and magic is. Today I dove into the deep end.
I finally cracked open the 36”x36” canvas I’d been keeping safely pristine, and I let myself head for the mystery and the magic. At first it was mildly terrifying. But with every stroke I started to remember that I trust myself, and that trust allowed me to let the experience unfold. It was incredible. I can’t believe I’ve been depriving myself of that joy for months just because I was afraid to finally take the next step.
Whatever your craft is, consider that it’s time for you to deepen that craft. Consider that it’s time to take the next step. Remember, you’ll never be ready so start anyway. You may, like me, find that you wish you’d been swimming in the deep end all along.
