I've been considering taking up painting for quite a while. Really.
What keeps me from really doing it, is some fear from mediocrity and amateurism.
But, I gotta start somewhere, so I decided to get over this debilitating fear. I kind of have to understand that at the outset, I, most possibly, won't be as good as I want to be, but that this fact simply should not make me stop or even worse, not start at all.
The reason I'm putting this out, is that I hope this would put some responsibilty on me, to really start. This post is like a promise to be kept. Well, I'm not very good at keeping promises, but nevertheless... The promise is there, and I have to keep it sometime.
I post some still lives from Paul Cézanne, that I find inspiring.
