I am a coward

I still don’t have a finished painting that is good enough to put on a postcard.

I need to finish the larger canvases.

The few that seem close to being “done” seem equally deserving of being set into a roaring fire.

I need boldness, big brushes and brash strokes.

What I have is timidity, the tiny brush and the endless noodling.

Psychological paralysis and incessant worry.

If something doesn’t change soon, I don’t know what will happen with my May show.

If I set tiny paintings ten feet apart and say, “I meant to do that,” do you think anyone will believe me?

  1. psychological paralysis & worry, and
    timidity too

    my favorite prayer to myself & to all is
    strength to you

    evolution & revolution will come to you
    as needed.

    better than you imagined

  2. Thank you for your kind words, G.R.

    I imagine the frustration is similar for writers.
    I want to force a break through of some kind and it never works like that, does it?

    The show must go on, inspired or not…
