I feel all goobled up.

.

In a transition right now.

.

It's hard to put it into words.

.

Don't know why this 'transition' is affecting me, but it is.

...

I'm stepping from pencil drawing to painting.

.

Feels like jumping off of a high-dive.

.

I feels like this because I've been working intensely with pencil drawing these past three years.

.

And now, I'm jumping into oil and acrylic painting, starting back at ground zero, literally.  When I observe my new painting teacher paint with my brush so easily, I try to do the same thing, and I'm all thumbs. 

.

I hope that one day  I can improve - but right now -- I only see in my mind what I want to paint, and I lack proficiency with the painting medium to transfer the images from my mind onto the canvas - I'm really just all thumbs.

.

Looking forward to what the future holds.
