Artists and Procrastination

Violets in Nautilus © Maud Guilfoyle

Why oh why do I drag it out when working on some paintings. Usually happens on larger pieces. Have no trouble with smaller pieces or journal sketches. I get all the prep drawings and research photos done and then progress at the speed of molasses. I think with the size, it feels more important and I don't want to blow it or be disappointed in the final work. Of course, that is the nature of being an artist, always being pulled to the next piece with the expectation that this one will come out as envisioned, like a carrot on a stick luring you forward.
