Wow. I have been breaking my brain, straining my personality, taxing my ability to withstand personal assault while creating a long, broad and deep set of practicum courses in the history of painting via one particular watercolorist’s curation. That would be me and I’ve been putting myself through the mill that I’m asking my students to work through.
After a bit over 12 months and running the practicums live and online, at what I thought was total sacrifice to my personal practice, I’ve had a personal breakthrough. It’s been arising over the past month but after some recent posts and the last two assignments that I demoed for my 20th century painting practicum, I laid this baby out.
She’s been coming along over the past month but now I see the full effect on me of creating the courses and doing the demo work over the past year. It’s good. This is one of those moments I can definitively say, boom. I’ve evolved onto a new level of expression.
I’m psyched and overwhelmed with emotion. Pleased. Happy. Let’s see if I can keep this up and expand upon the foundation.
It doesn’t matter what anyone else sees or perceives in these pivotal works. Ask any creator. These are moments we live for.
