The Lace Chronicles #18

original non-objective acrylic painting "The Lace Chronicles #18" by Paula Boss

24 x 48 Acrylic on Canvas              In Private Collection

So there I am, standing in front of this big empty canvas. The largest canvas I’ve ever attempted. I’m feeling pretty confident that I have control over the process and that it will work on a large scale but as usual, I don’t really know. So like a prize fighter before a fight, I shook out the tension…loosened myself up and gave myself a little pep talk. “Really, what’s the worst that can happen? You bungle it up, have to paint over it and then start again.  No biggie”  But that large blank canvas was staring back at me, taunting me like an arrogant competitor, doing it‘s best to intimidate me.  I took a deep breath, knowing that the only way to find out if I could do what I thought I could was to…just do it.

Oh…the struggles of an artist.
