Painting and creativity started to take the back burner of my life so this summer I enrolled in
"Daring Adventures in Paint + Life" with Mati Rose.
I met Mati several times over the past few years through Teahouse Studio .
Her work is so colorful and inspiring.
This week was the intro and the assignment was creating lush backdrops.
I loved every moment of my "studio" time.
Setting aside my inner critics the best I could, I dropped paint onto my brand new paint tray.
Slowly but surely.
I worked, I added, I changed my mind.
I shushed the voice of failure.
I also changed the background of the bottom left canvas since I took these photos.
Part of the journey.
The adventure of paint.
I am being daring.
