I’m finding my way as I go.

Welcome everyone, especially those of you who are new to this vlog! I’m just loving the conversations we share. Thank you for being here!

This morning, I thought about how scary it was for me to start the Art2Life Podcast. I knew I wanted to do it, but I didn’t know how. There were so many unknowns about the process that I put it off for a long time. Eventually, I became so frustrated that I just took the plunge and decided to figure it out as I go. And guess what? That’s exactly how I approach my art.

Here’s how I think about it…

Getting in motion is the secret sauce. Instead of having a plan for a painting, getting the paint down and responding to it without knowing where you’re going brings up intuition and emotion that can guide you. Of course, some thinking comes into play, and when combined with intuition and heart, the art brings up what’s meaningful for you. We find our way because art-making is the process of becoming yourself!

Are you comfortable with not knowing where you’re going in your art practice? Let me know in the comments.

I’ll celebrate with a special friend as we look back at our amazing guests, the pearls of wisdom we’ve gained, and the clues about where we’re heading on our creative journey. I’ll see you there!
