This piece, which I have named Find Courage, is the first thing I have ever painted. Hopefully, my new hobby won’t detract too much from my card marking (which currently is at a minimum).
The name derives from the sense of fear and uncertainty that I have felt over the last few weeks. It actually digs a bit deeper than that. The inspiration was drawn from surfacing items from deep within my heart and memories. I wanted it to be perfect. I slathered and brushed layer after layer searching for the right colors and mood to fit the longing I felt. I needed courage. From the beginning, I knew it wasn’t for me to keep. The passion to start and the spirit to finish was all for her.
We need courage for words; courage for action; courage to continue.
