Inspired by a brave friend of mine who never hesitates to do hard things, even when she's scared, I recently completed this painting of a woman who has made the decision to "dive in". The colors are meant to evoke the image of Rosie the Riveter, a female figure who represents strength and determination. I hope that the example of my friend and others like her will help motivate me to do the same in my creative journey. I am determined to dive in and not let fear or awareness of my limitations make my decisions for me! I can and will improve with practice!
