For two days I have avoided starting my two new images, the pastel and the canvas. I have them primed and ready to go, but I have been avoiding the next step by all possible means, this morning I even resorted to planting cat nip for Mighty (our cat) and out of season pepper plants, I have downloaded scanner drivers, and reorganized the studio, all in a (rather successful) effort to avoid making that first mark. Make a mark, any mark, make a MISTAKE, for goodness sake, just make a mark so it won't be blank anymore. A mistake you can work around, you can improve upon, embellish, disguise. But a blank page, with it's infinite promise of possible perfection...whoa, that is hard to meddle with!
So I have decided to start with a mistake. Will let you know how that goes.
