|in my shop.|
I want to talk about the positive. Like the fact that I have been painting more often. And that I have actually managed to list some of those paintings in my Etsy shop. I have always been an artist. I have always created and made things. But, unlike most other artists, it doesn't come easy for me. Inspiration doesn't just flow from some eternal spring. I don't always have a burning desire to make things. Honestly, I rarely have that desire. But once I do actually finish a painting or a piece of jewelry or a new design, I feel a very satisfying sense of accomplishment. ..........
So, I have been working on a smaller scale, painting tiny canvases and doing small watercolors. It seems to be helping my attention span and my confidence. I am trying to be brave. Trying to put myself out there a little bit, even when I don't feel ready. Trying to remember that we can't wait for everything to be just perfect before taking a step, otherwise we would never go anywhere.
I've got a lot of stuff floating around in my brain. I want to get it out and write about it here, on this blog. But I'm not making any promises. My life seems to be perched on a very delicate line right now, between inward reflection/growth and public expression/goals.
I'm glad that no one seems to have left during my long sabbatical. Thanks for sticking around.
Much love to all of you.
