GUESS WHAT?  Colors Swirling - Paint Flying . My music is too Loud? . Wolf Factor . Laurie Pace

I worked that night wiping, carving and restructuring the canvas.  I really felt drawn to the earthtones as it blended out.  Tomorrow I will post the final painting of the wolves. I love sharing the progress so you see making mistakes or trying again is part of the artistic process for me. It was the little painting guy Bob Ross that said, "We don't make mistakes, just happy accidents." 

My faith is strong when I have to step out of the box on these. It is terrifying, but the one thing I have is the spirit within that will not allow anxiety or fear to exist. I stay focused on the movement of the paint and the Spirit growing inside of me leading me. A calm always ensues as I work. God and I become like one. It may only be a shred of "WOW' in it, but I always know when I am getting somewhere and have chosen the right path. I am totally reassured God is part of the process as I step back and see the canvas.

Any fear or worries I had begin to dissipate and my confidence grew as I continued with the painting. At least when I stopped here for the night, I left my thoughts and any worries here in the studio as I went down to bed.  Terry just smiles because he knows the louder the music is, the better the painting will be.

Have you ever chosen to just let go and see what happens?
