Grace

This is Grace – a beloved dog who lived with her family for fourteen years.

This painting of her is my absolute best painting yet – and I’m proud of it but a little nervous too.

That internal critic sneaks in with “hmm – well this is good – but can you do it again …? What if this is it…?” If only that voice could be silenced.

The only option is to keep working, keep trusting myself. And finding gorgeous creatures like Grace to motivate me and make me fall in love with the process of bringing their image into being on canvas.

  1. Yes indeed, Claire. “Grace” is a beautiful piece of (oil on canvass, I presume) work. We are at times our harshest critic. But I am confident that you can create your next masterpiece when the timing is right.
