the painting groove

One of my New Year's resolutions was to get back into painting.  Strangely, I had been avoiding this hobby that I really enjoyed.  But you see, I have a little problem called "perfectionism."  I have a difficult time letting myself paint for fun without worrying about the end result being a perfect masterpiece.  I started small with projects likethis and this and this simple little winter painting above.  I've been doing very easy pieces that don't require a lot of sketching or thought; great paintings to make while watching Downton Abby and listening to books on tape.  The paintings aren't perfect or even that memorable, but I've been having fun.  It's refreshing to be doing something again that brings be a lot of joy.
