Illustration Friday (Sea)
This is the second painting I've done in thirty years. Illustration Friday is a friendly group project - Penelope sends a theme (this week, obviously, "Sea") and anybody who wants to participate sends a link.
Some of the participants are professionals, some are rank amateurs like me. One is a ten-year-old girl, her stuff is good!
At Penelope's site you can visit all of the week's links and you can get on the list too, if you like.
At first I thought I'd start a new, covert blog to post this picture on, because I was embarrassed. Then I thought about all the years I taught "Songs for Non-Singers" and how much I admired my students for being willing to take a chance on something that had frightened them all their lives, and I thought, "if they could all come and sing in front of me, then I can post this picture on my blog."
The older we get, the more we become accustomed to only doing things we are already good at. I think it's good to fight that kind of comfort, don't you?
