Yesterday I was hesitating at starting a difficult painting, so to get over that I made this very simple study of a fishing lure.
By choosing an easier subject I got started (often the hardest part of a painting) and once I was painting I settled into enjoying, seeing shapes, making choices about color etc. etc. and from there was able to move on the more difficult painting.. which turned out not to be difficult once I quit worrying about it.
