Lately I’ve felt excited, loved, creative and knowing something big is happening. How is it then that at the same time as I feel a bit vulnerable, frusterated, maybe even scared? 2 sides of the same coin I’m finding. Instead of resisting this anxiety, frusterated feeling I get sometimes I’m learning to embrace it; I’ve learned it means I’m about to to get a great idea or something good is about to happen.
This holiday season blissfully made my head spin a bit. I am finally getting a minute to take a deep breath now, it’s a good thing. In November I deliberately didn’t schedule classes or projects for December. I thought it’ll be nice to take it easy a bit, and hopefully I’d get some Christmas and Holiday orders. Well I did, life has been fabulously busy and full. Life as an artist is never boring. In January I’ll post some of the fun projects I worked on, I don’t want to ruin the surprise in case someone who shouldn’t sees them. I know that people connect with me and my work more because I am very honest, open about things and vulnerable. But you know what? it’s much easier watching others be vulnerable sometimes. Sometimes after pouring myself into a painting or project I’ll put it out there and people will connect and leave me feedback. I love that. I love to know when someone buys a piece where they put it, who it’s for, how they like it. Is it the same as they expected… Other times I put it out there and share my work or ideas and …. (insert cricket chirps here) … nothing… It comes with the territory, I get it… but blah… I don’t like that part.
So will that stop me from continuing to put myself out there? Apparantly not cuz I’m about to again… I just finished my C.C. White painting yesterday. I plan on photographing it this week and I’ll post soon. This painting is big, it’s 4 feet x 4 feet. She’s gloriously radiating loving energy into my studio right now as she sits on the easel. I can’t wait to share.
