This time last year I was in a panic & couldn’t start painting for my solo show. Anxiety ate me up — “what if I don’t finish them all in time?,” “what if my subjects don’t like their portraits?,” “who am I to do something like this?,” 😓 — but my “why” trumped the “what ifs” and pushed me to go on. On the surface, the exhibit was my thank you to the music scene that gifted me with lasting friendships & a life outside my advertising career. 💓 On a personal level I think I did it to acknowledge my painting-loving Fine Arts-student teenaged self, the one who ghosted for years when I joined the corporate world. 😶 It took a while but I’m glad to get a glimpse of her again. 🎨.

Do you get anxious when starting a big project too? What is your”why” for doing what you do? Please share! 🤗
