Not Really Slacking

Ok, I guess it’s not really slacking, but more about fear of change.  When I’m trying some new things (new media, new style, new technique, new subjects) being unsure of things, I all of the sudden get timid.  I suddenly find reason to clean the blinds, wipe shelves in the refrigerator, etc.  It’s all about conquering the fear. 

I mean, what are we really afraid of? 
Somebody laughing? Then, good!  Made them smile!  Judgemental opinions? As Nanny used to say, “That’s what makes it a horse race.”

Speaking of horses….
Trying to work my way through learning to use oils.  I love the feel of them, but still learning with each painting.  Taking away variables, I return to a subject I’ve done alot: horses.  Playing upon the aerial view I’ve been doing lately, here’s a horse, of course.
