Every artist faces a blank piece of paper, or a blank canvas at the start of his/her work. It can been seen as a inspirational moment, a moment of promise and heightened anticipation…an all around high. Or, to others, it can been seen, as a daunting challenge, almost a threat. Unfortunately, I belong to the latter group of artists.
So, I’m starting another piece. I find the best way to defeat the anxiety of starting is just to put down a little mark, followed by another little mark, and then you’re on your way. So, here’s how the paper looks now, and a sneak peek at the reference photo I hope to do justice to.
