To try to take our work into the public can be a scary thing to do but it takes discipline and connections with others to put the art to be seen.   Connections with family, friends, teachers, art groups all help to ease us to growing to the next level.  I taught a group of artists this weekend about understanding their art by using exercises writing their artist statement ( plus).  By sharing in conversations with others you gain confidence to talk about your art and even grow your art.

Who Am I Really?

going-deeper-5x7-inches-acrylic1I haven’t written for a while.  I was in Des Moines with my son and family then developed a monster cold.  Anyway, I’ve been thinking about my art and where I choose to be. I”m a gallery artist through and through. So that trying to please others instead of myself even though galleries want you to make very similar stuff I will have to lose a gallery and maybe gain big time somewhere else. 

As far as who I am really is a matter of loving myself  and accept all the creative process as it comes to me.  So I have a sign in front of me that says Paint IN the Spirit, that’s who I am.
