Wildlife Art by: Laura Curtin

Keep Going

Saturday I painted 7 hours and today, Sunday, an additional 5 so I have a good start on the new painting. If you look at my Etsy site you’ll see I’ve painted many different animals, felines, primates, canines, birds and the lone elephant. I wanted to paint something totally different this time. So I decided to paint a desert tortoise. Actually I’m splitting my painting time between the tortoise and the little bobcat “Chloe” for Forever Wild Animal Sanctuary.

Between the 12 hours this weekend and the 3 during the week I have the canvas covered. I didn’t just sail away into Lala land and lose myself in the painting but I was able to keep focused and on task. Sometimes that’s what happens with a painting. I think because the tortoise is something so different than my usual furry animal I am learning that I have to relearn how to paint every now and then. I realize once again that my motto, “Keep Going!” is always relevant when I think the painting looks bad. The part of my brain that creates knows what it is doing and if I keep going all will be right.
