I am 50.
A halfway mark? Maybe.
Life can be very long, and its a good thing too, because it has taken me all these years to grow into who I really am. Someone who loves to make things, all kinds of things!
I am currently working on an art piece 12 x24 inches, by far the largest thing I have made in mixed media. At first I was scared of the size...and my lack of experience...and then I heard a little encouraging voice whisper...
"so what....do it anyways".
And I immediately thought, "yeah, so what, what's the worst thing that could happen?"
I realized that just doing it, just taking the steps to do it would teach me so much that I could never learn just thinking about doing it, or reading books or watching others do it....
So, I am doing it, this huge painting of "Marie". And I am learning so much! And I am feeling so good as I do it, I know I am in the right place.
I am posting this wonderful video about loving art, and having doubts about living the artist you are. I hope you enjoy it as well.
