I got some great advice from Liz Wiltzen, previous kid and fabulous painter, yesterday after my post about being hesitant to paint in my new studio. She said:
I moved into a new studio in December, and it took me 3 weeks to stop puttzing (cleaning, organizing, painting walls etc.) for the same reason. Then I did my first painting and it was quite underwhelming. It actually took about 3 or 4 to get warmed up to the new space and do something I was happy with. You might want to just jump in and get the first one over with, good or bad, it'll get the ball rolling in there.
So I got in there and painted today and ... my first painting was underwhelming indeed. So I wiped it and started over and was quite pleased after that. Thank you for the push, Liz!
