The Cardinal and The Nokomis Sunset…
The Cardinal is a very early watercolor painting from many moons ago when I first started my watercolor journey.
The Nokomis Sunset is one of my most recently completed watercolors.
I entered my first juried art contest with this one, just a few weeks ago. I didn’t place in the top three, but I did learn a lot, and gained a bit more confidence in my ability as an artist. This piece did receive an honorable mention, and I was given a gift card for the local art store. Although I didn’t win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, I did place at 5th. And, I’m quite happy with that. The fact that I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, beyond my fear of not being good enough, and entered the contest at all, well, means that I won!
Fear is real, we all have it. But, regrets are real too.
