Ahhh Joanna - you reminded me of the easel (still brand new in it's packaging) and all the artists materials, just gathering dust in my study.

As a child I won prizes in competitions for my art work, as a teenager I was banned from the art corridor at high school, as a gesture of how much I'd upset my art teacher by not electing to carry on with my art work, and "wasting my talent"...she maintained that ban for the whole 2 years too, and only spoke to me again on my final day at school.

And probably about 7 or 8 years ago now, I asked for the easel and the materials as Christmas presents with the intention of trying my hand at it again, but between motherhood, not having a clue what to paint, and being a little bit scared that I won't be able to do it any more - they've just sat there unused.

Since I've started therapy for my ED, I have more ideas and inspiration now for subject ideas, but something still holds me back...maybe I should set myself a goal of creating something by a certain deadline?
