Staring at a task before you, searching where to even begin so a challenge we all face. Today’s Blog post explores ways to get moving.
At the root of most of our Fears is the never ending voice of Self Doubt...
Beginning is the answer.
Taking that first step. One of the best suggestions I have ever received in overcoming the challenges of starting, was to get some type of mark on the paper/canvas
All of these acts allow you to go from nothing (blank canvas staring back at you) to having begun. It is in taking that first step that breaks down all of those voices in our heads (the internalized voices of parents, siblings, friends, teachers and others). The voice in your head is now yours. You have started and in doing so those voices are on their way to being silenced.
Both of these two images began through the process of Mark Making. I try to allow some of my starting marks to show through the final piece. If I become stuck during the process,
I will go back into the painting and add more marks. This releases the energy needed to move forward.
