I am very confident of my visual talent. But blogging is opening up a new venue. THE WRITTEN WORD.
I wrote the following essay this morning.
A lot has been revealed in the past weeks. I faced a lot about myself and how my purpose was morphing again. I’m not making things happen. There was the ADHD gear box. I was in neutral. Thinking of so many great things but not being able to engage and complete the ideas. The result was what I created an artist block. I stopped my art and got lost in the distractions to avoid my vision.
AVOIDANCE!!! A corrupting thread in my life based on fear.
I’m facing the fact that creating an art business is work. I can’t wait for the perfect action to take and have the expectation that it will be the answer. I need to keep being a doer. Every day.
One thing I started to do was paint again. An artist has to keep honing their skills. Also I am embarking on going back and renewing my drawing skills. I’m playing with creating a character of myself in drawing. Art has to come first and then I will be able to create my art business.
