lacking in ability lacking in confidence

When I start a painting I have full hopes that I am going to achieve something great. Occasionally for a few minutes I’m happy with my achievement but then I question my technique, I question my ability and everything about the painting. I generally put it to one side until I think. Think is it worth continuing with? During that process I have usually panicked about how much work I need to do to improve so I move on. But I keep going back to it and questioning myself. I sometimes get inspiration to move it on but because I am not painting day in day out and have another problems in my life those problems take over and take priority. I am now at this stage with these three paintings.

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
