The last week has shown me how easy it is to lose confidence in myself. There are a few circumstances in my life, that have really made me feel vulnerable. Sometimes I feel almost paralyzed with fear. This week one of my kids had a serious lapse in good judgement that left me helpless. I have been extremely tense this week with fear. I know that God will always be there for me, but I haven’t been able to remember it when fear felt like a straight jacket wrapped around me.
I also started a class this week with Katie Kendrick. She is utterly amazing! I have never seen anyone make art look so effortless. I know that my skill level is not as good as many of the other students, which is adding to my fear of inadequacy. Here are two of the paintings I have made in the class so far.
I like this one. I think it really captures my feelings this week.
