I think we all a negative Nellie inside. That voice that tells us "we can't paint, we can't create, it's just not good enough." In my doodling I found myself trying to capture her. This is what came out.
She is that woman from my childhood who could criticize and made me feel I was fat and certainly not talented enough to be an artist.
The Critic or Negative Nellie is still with me but I've come to accept her and let her have her say. She represents that shadow part of myself. I acknowledge her and move on with whatever it is I am doing.
Here is my latest FEARLESS painting. Interesting there is a shadow in it. I painted this after I sketched Miss Nellie.
