Be Fearless

This quote is very fitting for me this week.

I am experimenting with different media and trying to exercise my art more frequently. I have been out of practice for awhile and so the fear tends to set in. I can’t draw, it has been too long. I only have 20 minutes, my art can’t possibly look decent in 20 minutes. What is my art “style?” Every artist needs a “style.”

Taking some classes on skillshare has been helpful. It is easier to take some pressure off if I am practicing as a “student.” The more that I draw and practice, the more fun I have. I am getting more comfortable and confident. I am learning everyday. The more I practice the better I will get.

So here I am becoming fearless. I don’t need to know what my “style” is right this minute. I can just make art everyday and maybe I will notice a reoccurring theme. My style will come. But one thing I know for sure, art sets my soul on fire.

What sets your soul on fire?

I am a mother of two beautiful daughters. They are the center of my world. In my desire to be the best mother I can be, I sometimes forget to do things for me. My oldest daughter, at the time of writing this she is eight years old, tells me she wants to be a photographer and an artist like me. I love art. I have loved it for many years. Unfortunately is has taken a backseat. My daughter has reminded me that my girls are watching me. If I want to them to pursue what makes them happy, I need to allow myself to do the same. So, I wouldn't consider myself a blogger but maybe I can document my journey. Set goals to allow myself to create art and explore who I am as an artist and share my experience.
