6/52

newbeginnings_2..jpg

This is my photo submission for week 6 of The 52 project. I apologize in advance because I have no g’children photos this week. Given that I’ve taken no photos of myself for weeks, I’ve chosen a photo that doesn’t warm my heart like my kids or g’children, but is still near and dear to my heart. For reasons that you will understand in moments, she is like another of my children. If you read my blog, you’ve probably read the story behind this piece, so by all means, feel free to enjoy one of my other posts.

In the interest of brevity, I’ve always yearned to paint and draw but was convinced that I couldn’t do either. In 2013, in spite of my fears, I took my first painting and drawing e-courses. I was seriously hooked! After less than a month of beginning my first drawing class, I drew, collaged and painted the above piece. I look at her whenever I doubt myself and feel that I can’t do something. She reminds me that I must banish the words “I can’t” from my vocabulary, because they only serve to limit the amazing things that I can do.

Blessings, Lydia
