Being a Real Artist
Can I get really honest with all of you? I hope so. This is me, in my studio. I am a pretty basic kind of person. I like simple, and no fuss. My absolute favorite thing to do besides reading (I am an avid reader) is to make art. Do you want to know what my real goal or dream is? It is to make and sell my art......for a living. It sounds CRAZY when I say it or write it, because it has been conditioned into my brain that it is impossible to do so.
That is why I have put so much time into my art classes. I love teaching people art, but my passion is to make it myself. Teaching my own kids all day, leaves me feeling in need of a little recharging. I find that by creative activities.
Right now I am obsessed with making collages. I am not sure why. It seems to fit well with my lifestyle currently, and I do not have time for deep concentration to create a large painting from start to finish. I can however work a little at a time on a collage, and it is the piecing together of the artwork that I find exciting, because I do not know how it will end.
I have decided to halt on my Homeschool program for the fall. It was a very difficult decision, but a number of doors opened in my life, and it felt like God was leading me through them. One door is a joint venture with my husband, which is my heart and really exciting. It just felt like the homeschool program was more "my idea," than "God inspired," if you know what I mean.
So now- I am getting back to who I am as a person, and the SELF-CARE I often tell people to consider for themselves. I am trying to make art daily, exercise daily, watch an uplifting program daily, and I am feeling great and creative again!
