But you continue anyway? Yeah, that's what this is. Ironically I wrote a little something on the side of it questioning my path, & how do I know if I'm doing the right things. And the next thing I know, I have this piece which is a total surprise. So, I guess I'll just keep doing, even when I don't know what I AM doing. I think that's faith.
I'm pretty sure I have artist ADD. I will discover new mediums & want to learn everything about it, buy all the materials, & try to create a masterpiece. My latest medium is Alcohol Inks. I work comfortably with watercolor, but it took a whe to learn to work WITH them. They have their own ways of doing things, their own set of rules. But with time & patience, I learned what I cod do. So when I saw the Alcohol inks, I thought, piece of cake. But they don't act like a normal ink or paint. They have a mind of their own. The spread, bleed, & wander off without so much as a warning. I have to admit, I'm at their mercy. At the same time, I've opened up my inner abstract artist. Trusting the inks to do their thing is really the gift. Surrendering to their whim often produces amazing results. Letting go of control is actually the key, a lesson not only learned in this medium of art, but in my life.
Does making money mean I had a successful art show? Not always.Read More
