I Knew It Wouldn't Last

Atlantic, by Sleeping At Last on Grooveshark

Sorry for being MIA for a few days. This week has been awful and it kinda threw me a little bit. I've had such a great start to the new year with hardly any down days so it shocked me a little that on Monday when I had a panic attack. I haven't had one in ages and it came completely out of the blue and its taken me a few days to get back on track. I'm feeling a little more normal today but i'm still a little out of sorts, so I have been doing some therapeutic tidying up and washing up. Funny how boring house work can be the thing that you turn to when you need to feel normal and calm down a bit!

Today I finally got round to starting my project, the painting part anyway. I've been a little apprehensive to start because I desperately don't want to mess this up! But then I remembered my little stash of inspiration for such times.

The last one is one that I especially struggle with. I think I desperately don't want to fail and I'm scared that people wont like my work that it hinders me and I don't work to my full potential. I'm working on this gradually, I just have to keep reminding myself that it doesn't matter what other people think. It's my work and as long as I'm happy with it then that's all that matters. So here's my first painting of the year! It's only a tester but I'm happy with it. Need to work on my proportions a bit though :S


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your set back. You'll get back on your feet and feel normal again in no time!
    As far as your art, I'm the same with photography. I care what people think and I can't help it. I'm learning to not care because I want to express myself, and as long as I'm happy, then that's all that matters. :)

  2. I hope you are better now. I do like the quotes, may have to remind myself of them from time to time. I'm intrigued by your painting, can't wait to see more.

    Btw, hi :) I'm a new reader.
