still trying

At last,maybe I am getting somewhere with my paintings.I feel as if I am getting closer to actually painting what I want to, that matches my feelings, & struggles to depict a vision.
A big thing, possibly the biggest part of my artwork, has been the acceptance of my personal style.By that I mean, realizing that my style is valid, it is “OK to do it like that”.
corny as it sounds, it has been a long time since I first drew as a child, & tore everything up because I thought it was “wrong”.well, now, I know I can put marks on a canvas, & not feel ashamed with those marks.
Many of you will not know what I mean.Hopefully, some of you might.
I can hold my head up, & tell myself I am allowed to paint what I want.
