Peta Miller draws parallels to the Olympic Games as she leaps fearlessly from the starting blocks of her creative challenge.
Well I am finally underway. Those little canvases unpacked and spread out looked fairly daunting but full of possibilities. Having just arrived home from 10 weeks overseas I was full of ideas but still a little unsure which way to jump. The canvas size is a challenge for me as I usually work big and fairly abstractly. The time frame is also challenging as I usually like to wander in and out of a painting and work up in layers…..no time for that.
I wanted to do something different and draw inspiration from my recent trip away. I am swinging all the time between ‘this is great fun’ to ‘I’ve definitely bitten off more than I can chew’…and somewhere in the middle of all that I just keep working…..listening to good music and keep going. If there was painting in the Olympics I think it would be something like this.
I am inspired by those of you who have already finished.
