Inspiring Confidence

When I start a new project, I often have an overwhelming feeling of incompetence. How am I going to pull this off?

One of the ways I face this situation, besides walking around the shop, is looking through my portfolio and revisiting the volume and variety of what I’ve created over the last 48 years. This somehow seems to give me the push I need to start putting a few lines on paper.

This woodpecker is one of my favorite, inspiring confidence in my ability. It’s a reminder to me of the effort I went to, to create this fella’, and that I can do it again.
