Confidence and Art

In one of my Yahoo groups we've been discussing confidence in our art. Some of us seem to have the same problem, believing that what we create isn't good enough. I think maybe instead of not being good enough I'm just not serious enough or not patient enough. I want the end result RIGHT NOW! I am going to work on my patience when I create. (I think it's a little late to work on serious). 

It's so hot out I've been working on a few things inside. I added borders on the flower ATC's. they look more finished now. 

 I found this unfinished one in my stash so finished it. Kinda plain, I may do something else to it. 

Someone in my ATC Fun group hosted a Birds swap. It really pained me but I resisted, it was hard but I prevailed! So now there's an owl swap. Really? Like I can NOT join a swap with owls. I'm so weak. I only made seven owl ATC's.

I worked in my journal a little. Very little, but here is a page I did. Surprise! It's an owl!

I finally got around to making a couple of ATC's but they don't feel finished. Maybe they need. . . bugs? bling? I'm not great at doing collages so I will have to get back to them later. 

Here are a few of the things I've done this past week.





I did the Karma page while listening to music, 'Kamelot'. I don't do many faces as you can see. I have been sketching a lot of faces but have trouble with eyes and hair and lips and noses and . . .

Today was a very non-productive day. I messed around on the computer, did a load of laundry and a few dishes.  How lazy is that!

Here are some of my latest works of art ( makes them sound special doesn't it)! 

Barn Owl - acrylic paint and ink on cardboard

My little chickadee - makes me think of Mae West and WC Fields

Purple Cone flower in watercolor and glaze medium

Wash Day - collage with watercolor on old book pages

And a new addition to my owl family - the Barn owl.  He's just a little creepy lookin' I think.
