Oil Painting Encourager Sessions / Re: The Old River
« Last post by Happychappy on Today at 12:41:05 AM »
Oh! Robynann, you are certainly not alone with what you are going through because I think everyone has at some point in their journey, gone through the same feelings as you have. Never ever lose sight of the fact that you are a FANTASTIC, VERSATILE artist and   to compare yourself to other artists is incorrect because we are all individuals and as such, have our own styles, strengths and weaknesses. Imagine if we were all the same, how boring life would be!! We would have nothing to aspire to or to strive for. Further, NEVER entertain the idea of giving up because it would be such a waste of your wonderful talent which is a gift.

Mea's message is excellent. Take note of the wisdom she has displayed in her own experience.  Also what comes to mind is the recent book I read by Dennis, whose late father drummed into him as a child, that there is no such word as "can't" which instilled in him, the confidence and determination never to give up.

Robynann, I don't mean this message to be a lecture and I hope you take it in the vein in which it is intended, which is with love, strength, understanding and to uplift you in your time of doubt.  You are worth it my friend.

I have to say I’m very proud of myself! This is my first non class oil painting - Plus I drew it freehand!! I even used a palette knife for the flowers. It’s more impressionistic, thus the funky spoon.  It’s 4x4. A cute size!
