There is no part of me that is bold... at all. I asked my daughter if she thought I was bold, she said,"Uhh...no." I usually play it safe, do what is expected of me. I am not one to rock the boat.
This year I want to step outside my comfort zone in life and art. I don't want to worry about criticism or live for praise. I want to rock the boat, even if it is just a little bit. I want to be bold.
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Tuesday Texture and the class BeStill 52. My images were textured with Kim's textures 0212 and 0603. The assignment for Be Still 52 was to hang a bottle and take a picture of it.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me!
Have a great week!
