Thea and I were in San Antonio on one of our honeymoons a couple of years ago, and stopped in for a dinner of Mexican Food. We had a cocktail while waiting to be seated, and this was the center piece on the cocktail table. I took a shot of it with my iPhone, but in the dark room, didn't get much to work with. I thought about it often over the intervening time, but just couldn't figure out how to make a painting from it. Finally, today, I got up the courage to tackle it. I'm glad I did, because I really like the way it turned out.
I've always scoffed at artists when they speak of the “courage” to begin a painting. I mean, what can happen if it doesn't turn out? Not much, really; you just rub it out or set it aside and try again tomorrow. But now, with a daily deadline looming and no time for do-overs, I'm feeling a little different about the whole idea.
I do still think courage is an over the top word when used in this context. Maybe confidence would be a better fit.
