So, how many of you out there have a resident inner critic? I know I do, and I find it quite annoying, most of the the time, and sometimes quite helpful. Today I have been trying to figure out how to use Adobe Photoshop Elements, and how to take a decent picture with a point and shoot camera. And, to top it off I have been working with a brush and oils trying to get those loose wonderful strokes. So, my critic is having a wonderful time! The painting today is a test, I wanted to see if I could get a decent picture, and then if I could figure out how to get it cropped and posted. So, if anyone has any thoughts on the picture or hushing the inner critic, please let me know. I love a quote that I read from Samuel Goldwyn " Don't pay any attention to the critics. Don't even ignore them" It makes sense, if you spend time listening and worrying then you won't have time to do what is necessary. I laugh whenever I think of that quote!
