Inspiration: Pushing out of My Comfort Zone

April 17, 2013
I was inspired by an Instagram photo from the beautiful Elsie of A Beautiful Mess. It had been a long time since I sat down and painted something rather large, and after seeing the painting that Elsie made, I was driven to create something completely different from what I normally would do. It pushed my out of my comfort zone.

I started it while my son was having his first sleep-over with my parents. I am a perfectionist when it comes to lines and white spaces in my paintings, but I held myself back and forced myself to let go. It felt good.

Has anything in particular inspired you lately? Have you forced yourself to let go and try something you haven't done before?
