I know that it’s difficult ( actually terrifying ) to put yourself ” out there” as an artist. Most of my time on this earth has been in hold my breath, fear of being seen. Painting these trees, for some reason have helped me grow into a person ” artist ” who doesn’t seem to have a difficult time stating ” I am an artist ”
You know how it is…..all your friends and family just LOVE your work ( probably because they love you ) . At least that’s what you think. I am finally able to just do it….put myself out there and guess what? I’m getting some second looks, awards, sales and of course rejections. But that is all part of it and it is thrilling. So what if I fail….that just means..I wasn’t afraid to try! I surprisingly find the rejections make me work a little more. But it’s not work. It’s growing.
