Upstream

Rhythm can be difficult to re-establish once it's broken. I'm struggling with getting back in the groove of things after the move and all that comes along with it, but I'm making progress! I'm very much enjoying my new studio space, and the deliciously large easel I was able to get. Makes these 6 x 8s seem so tiny. Which is part of my method....giving myself the environment in which to create larger pieces than I have before. I think part of the break in my rhythm is the "pressure" to paint larger. The name of this piece says a lot about how I'm feeling momentarily. :)

Love your delicate colors and great brushwork!It is hard when you break your rhythm but you're really producing great things!
So simple and so lovely!

When I look at this gorgeous work, and read about your feelings, I think isn't it odd how we don't know that we
re awesome and can do anything when we are really good? You are really good. Big, small -- it doesn't make any different what size you paint, what matters is that you make whatever you want to make, and your work is and always has been great.

It may not feel to you that you have your rhythm back, but we're seeing pure joy. This is lovely, Julie.

All these comments are so true. Sometimes we get a little blinded; but you know, swimming upstream builds more muscle, so keep at it (great metaphor). I love these soft tones. XOXO
