orange you glad
I'm learning to be a little more bold.
That's so fitting: A little bold.
I tell myself I should do boldness is one grand gesture, but usually it's the accumulation of small moments of daring, adding up over time. I'm profoundly annoyed by this.
I found the artwork of Ruth Shively, and the gears in my mind went clink clink clunk and I've just been staring at her portraits for weeks now. I'm so inspired.
A little blue here, a little orange there: gradually my palette is opening up, becoming more interpretive.
My mantra: do the work now, tell the story later.
I want to hole up in my studio and just keep charging ahead, I have so much more to try.
