Have you Jumped off any Cliffs Lately? Horse Paintings bursting out in the studio! Laurie Pace

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

Red screams it in this one!  Being creative and innovative is the awesome job of an artist.  Sometimes beginning a new canvas can be daunting.  Images of paintings past that were either washed or scraped away, or painted over loom before me, sometimes bringing in that nasty visitor called 'doubt'.   

As an artist sometimes you feel like you not only reinvent your world on canvas daily, you also have to market and reinvent yourself.  How in the world can you have a 'new me'?  It is more like a renewed me. Doubt has to go away. Fresh creative thoughts must be part of the process and immediately banishing the negative ones creeping in. 

So I challenge you today, jump off that cliff.  Renew yourself... find those wings and fly.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."  Romans 15:13

So glad to have dropped by! I am heading back to the studio today after a long hiatus and doubt is foremost in my mind and few ideas. It is a bit scary but your post was a good reminder that we all battle this demon from time to time. Today i will "jump off a cliff". Can't wait! Your painting is beautiful. Thanks Laurie.
