I told you last year how much I sweat over this one. The large canvas is the most anticipated project at art camp. The day we do it, we make sure it is not too hot and that we are well rested for the adventure. There can't be rain in the forecast. We do yoga that morning so we are stretched out so that we can handle the physicality of it- you can't paint it sitting on your tushie.
The night before we paint it I dont sleep very well. Even after 9 years of this.
It starts like all things-
from nothing but a beautiful idea and some people who believe in it.
step by tiny step
one foot in front of the other
don't overwhelm yourself with the entire project
a little bit at a time
lots of encouragement
'yes you can'
'I believe in you'
It gives me the goosebumps when this happens.
But we need a name for this one.
