The Need to Create...

I was supposed to go to bed an hour ago. Instead I popped my head into The Blue Room "just for a minute". The end result is the creation above.

I've only been doing this art gig for about seven weeks now, but every day I feel the pull to paint. I know it has been etched into me by the Art Every Day Month challenge. The premise is that it takes three weeks to create a habit. That is definitely true in my case here.

Underneath this finger painted creation is a thick lashing of white paint. Underneath that is something else that I was creating for Christmas. And I hated it. I have another one too. And while I don't hate it as much as the one that I erased tonight, I'm going to make some changes on it.

However, I do need to stop thinking, "oh I hope they will like it", when I paint for others. I must just remember that I am giving them part of me. My finger painted creation is me.

So back to the drawing - or in this case, painting - board tomorrow night to whip up a couple of new creations, and also work on commissions!

I'm sad that the AEDM challenge is over but I am very happy I participated in it. I've met lots of new arty friends and have some brilliant ideas to work with, plus I learnt a thing or two along the way.

So, now it's officially sleep time!

Happy creating, Paula xo
