After 18 months of planning, clarifying my dreams and goals, and taking steps towards my career change... I have made my move. The past three months I have painted like a fiend...enjoying every moment too. I still awaken at 5am to take my coffee into the studio... but now I stay there. I'm finally a full time artist!
Without interruption, I have produced work I am very proud of. Artistically, I am growing and socially, my world has exploded...for the best! I am putting myself out into the art community and have been well received by many in the art associations and groups I now belong.
Looking back..the decision to pursue this passion has been an exercise in RISK for me. Never one to shun challenge, I do so with a modicum of control. I had been used to control through planning with unsurprising outcomes. My life is different now. I am learning that as much as I love and strive for my goals...there is an uncertainty to my outcomes. I am making friends with this. I feel vulnerable...and also limitless in my possibilities.
As I mentioned, I have been busy at work in the studio with my intention to show my work to all who know me on March 4th. I've created a body of work I will eagerly present. I believe I will be acknowledged for who I have become.
I am an observer of life and love to paint what I see with watercolors.
