Which all comes down to I really want my art to connect at a healing heart level. I want people to see beauty in my art even when life is not so beautiful. I want it to be uplifting and give hope and love and all that good stuff. If you are in a pit, I want to drag you out of it! You see, I've been there and art helped me out of the pit. Making art and viewing art.
So I looked at my art and I said BLECH. It doesn't do that right now.
And I want it to!
Which is a good thing....
The only thing I could come up with is to tuck inside my studio and just create until I am satisfied my art says what I want it to and IN MY OWN WAY!
I don't want to post and see how many likes and make more of that stuff. I don't want to be swayed by comments and praises by others. I do want to be true to my own heart.
I don't want to be ordinary. I want to be extraordinary and affect the world!
The way I was painting before, won't work.
I painted for others.
I painted for you. Because I like you!
But that is not authentic for me. Not anymore. Perhaps at one time it was but not now.
I want to paint bigger
This is a big change for me. And I am excited!
So it will take time alone and without extraneous feedback. I'm protecting this baby.
What I will produce will be me, my voice, my hope in the world.
