WOYWW #357 (What's on YOUR Workdesk Wednesday)

Well it's been almost a year since I've been able to visit Ms. Julia Dunnit over at the Stamping Ground for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW), but I know I am truly established in our new home because HERE I AM again ready to play! Grin
I was trying to pick just one photo to post today but the new studio space is so fantastic and So BIG and SO CLEAN this morning... (we had family over last night so I had to tidy up) that I am just going to post all of them. Bigger Grin
And to share a epiphany I experienced last night.  
In preparation for the big family visit I finally opened the box where all my finished canvases have been packed away since last September and I was completely overwhelmed with a) how many there were, b) how amazing they were and c) how much I had progressed in my arty, mixed-media journey in just one year.  
I know that we are our own worst critics, but I did not realize just how powerful my inner critic had become until I opened this box and was AMAZED by the jewels I found inside.
I actually allowed myself to Feel Good about my own body of work and I am inspired to go make more messy, happy goodness using paper and paste and paint and ink.

As always, Thanks for popping in to see what I am up to today, and if you liked visiting my workdesk today you can pop on over the Stamping Ground blog today and visit other work desks from all around world!

PS:  Go HERE for a video tour of my brand new studio space...

  4. We are our own worse critics. It's wonderful when we can come back later with a fresh look and really appreciate what a great job you've done and think 'wow. I did good!'
    Have a great day.

  9. That is an amazing body of work Lynne :) Just beautiful color filled goodness! I think know how you felt..I am chronically dissatisfied with whatever I make. It doesn't come out as I planned...like..EVER. Then later I see it after putting it away somewhere in disgust and I am like..hey that is actually pretty dang good. I guess if I didn't go through this process then I would have the most inflated ego in the world LOL

    1. Oh Shel, how you make me LAUGH! Grin Aren't we just our OWN WORST CRITICS! The image in my head always seems to be better than my first result, so I have started walking away and going back in the next day to add more layers and I am LOVING my new results. I think we are giving up on ourselves waaaay too soon! Thanks YOU for the lovely comment... I find it so empowering when someone whose work I admire, admires mine! (((hugs)))
