Not only I am going to work on TRANSFORMING several areas of my life in 2014, I am also constantly working on transforming my creative endeavors.
I have said to many that I am not responsible for the ideas that pop into my head. GOD is and I truly believe that. There is no way I could come up with all of the ideas that RACK my brain 24/7 and part of my purpose is to share, inspire and teach you.
I want to share with you an example of what starts as a blank canvas and turns into something that reflects thoughts, prayers, wishes and dreams. I am ready (and excited) to share with you how I do it so that YOU can do it too.
Throughout my "creative career", I have learned some really BIG lessons and lots of little reminders. At the end of the day, the biggest and most important lesson I have learned is to stay true to me, my process and my creative visions. One of those visions is to be able to create something and have it reproduced in many ways for you to use in your art. That is a dream of mine but it is not happening. It doesn't mean it won't ever happen, but for now, in staying true to my art, it stays original.
I LOVE to create original art but staying original without major support and distribution is difficult. This is where my faith kicks in and reminds me that what is next is unclear but that I am headed in the right direction. THAT is part of the TRANSFORMATION of my mind and again, I am good with right where I am at.
In keeping with my dream of being able to get my art out so that you can get it, I have decided to continue selling my one of kind art. Not just framed pieces or canvas' but also my ART PAPERS. Here is an example of some of my recent art papers: My intention, as I travel this coming new year, is to teach you to see it not as just a painted piece of paper, but as something that you can use and transform into your own art. I want to teach you how to look past the general idea and learn to create art from art.
It may sound corny, but it is the truth. There is nothing better than seeing the transformation of taking one thing and making it another.
so I will continue to DREAM BIG DREAMS and create art for myself and for you.
What is your dream? Are you dreaming big enough? Maybe it is time to start dreaming...
