I leave for a road trip today. It will be a long one where lots of paintings will be delivered. Its kind of interesting that road trips and walks have fueled most of my art as of late.
When I first decided to call myself an artist I felt that I didn't have enough to say. HAHA often we all feel either we ourselves are too much or not enough. I feel that SOOOO often. It showed up in my art as I didn't really know what I had to say. What was I offering people? Did I want to create just because I love the act of painting?
As I was sitting in the passenger seat of the car on a long drive I thought about how often I am in that spot, viewing this beautiful and challenging world. Then I thought of my walks and how they clear my head and give me a new perspective. It dawned on me, this is what I can offer. I can offer my view, my change of perspective to you!
So I walk, I drive (or mostly sit in the passenger's seat yay) and I store those memories in my head, those feelings. Then I come home and let them out on wood or canvas. The paint delivers those feelings to the surface. That is my goal. So now I have something to offer you. A little piece of me, I am enough, you are enough, life is hard...... look at the sky or the flowers. Change the perspective. Feel the feelings and keep going! I love you all. Thank you for your support and for going along on this journey with me.
