But, very early on in my painting life in 2014, I made a pledge to use painting as a practice in letting go.
As if I had a choice.
Truth to tell, letting go of Screw Auger Falls Birches wasn't tremendously difficult—I'd painted it well over a year ago, and I didn't feel like shopping for new canvas board so what the heck, why not?
Harder was letting go of Passing By a few days ago, even though I wasn't wildly in love with it. I could still feel the attachment that grew from investing myself in creating it.
Nonetheless, buh-bye to Passing By, and hello again to Just Kidding.
I'm grateful that I document process, providing myself evidence of the fun stuff that can come from daring and risk-taking and letting go. I usually have trouble veiling something already painted on a canvas, but isn't this yummy?
