Two Steps Forward

Alpenglow 4 2000

The old saying “two steps forward and one step back” is a go-to mantra that often comforts me.  It reminds me that nothing worthwhile comes easily.  It is a way of verbalizing my intention to keep trying even when I grow tired of setbacks.

I can’t express enough how much joy painting is bringing me these days.  It is giving me a reason get up in the morning and push through the physical pain that I’m currently burdened with.  Without a strong desire to create art my forward movement would have surely ceased weeks or months ago.  Instead I am kicking and gliding like the two skiers in my painting, already thinking of the adventures to come.

Happy Friday!
