Painting is all about letting go. I think that’s why it’s sometimes so hard for me to pick up the brush. The blank canvas can be very intimidating. What am I going to paint? What if it’s not good enough? For me, it’s almost more intimidating to work on a painting in progress.I’ve gotten something down. It’s not finished. It’s not amazing. But it’s not awful either. To continue working on the painting means that I might mess it up. I might change it from OK to awful.
It’s like when you’re driving across an open landscape and there is… something on the horizon, but you just can’t tell what it is yet, and the only way to find out is to keep heading in the same direction. That’s where I’m at today. I’ve opened myself to new possibilities. Some part of me said, “Just write that Blog, don’t worry about what comes from it. Don’t worry that your writing won’t be good, or no one will read it, or that you’ll start with such good intentions and then will... just... stop. Don’t worry about how this will change your business. Just believe that it WILL change things, that it WILL open new doors, doors that you don’t even know exist.
Hello Dear Friends! I am so excited to share with you a new, organic shift in my art business. In effect, I’m not entirely certain where this will take me, but it is time to set sail in a new direction, allowing myself and my business to unfold and evolve along the way. To that end, I am embarking on a journey in blog-land. It is my intention to write about my artful life and share stories with you a couple of times each week.
