Vermillion

Vermillion ¬© Sue O’Kieffe 2010

I took a much needed break. I was putting too much pressure on myself to produce, and that’s never a good sign. I created this doodle sometime in December, but I was unhappy with it and had no desire to post it. My inner critic was wah-wah-wah’ing at me.

If I remember correctly, this doodle started out as an exercise in wanting to play more with watercolor crayons. I am not as confident¬† with using these as I am with the prismacolors. I was not happy with the results. Today I am posting the doodle as a statement of it being ok. I told myself a year ago or so, whenever I started this series of what I call “spirit doodles” that whatever I posted was ok. And so it is.

I would love to hear your stories of how you make friends with your inner critics.
