This is a piece in progress. This semester has been a good one in that I am learning how to paint more skillfully and intentionally. A few weeks ago my teacher said my painting was hesitant.  Monday she said my work was confident.  I know what she means.  I have been afraid to paint. Afraid of wasting paint and canvas on a bad piece.  But the reality is that you have to earn your skill as a painter.  One has to paint a lot of mediocre and just plain awful works before good art happens.  I have done my share.
