Mixed Media Artist

Faith – In Progress (Triptych)

This is a mixed media triptych painting on wood, 6″x8″, 8″x6″, 4″x6″. The sides are painted pink ( same pink that is in the painting).

Tomorrow I hand over my paintings so they can hang my show. I am really excited now that all the hard work is done.
Part of me wants to just send Chris to drop them off. I can be such a coward sometimes. This is why I feel so comfortable hiding out on the internet. Hiding behind my blog and my etsy store. You don’t have to confront anyone face to face, it is so much easier!
But I can’t do that.
So, I will try to quiet my butterflies and fake it tomorrow. Isn’t that what Oprah said to do?
‘Look how confident I am’.
Hopefully none of them read my blog or my cover will be blown and they will know that I am just a big scaredy cat nerd and not cool, not one -little- bit.
(Although, I have a sneaking suspicion that they may all ready know this, even without this inside information!)

    You gain confidence with each step you take forward. Suspend your judgement of yourself. “Learn to listen to the voice of your heart, for it alone carries the stories, poems and truths that yearn to be birthed through you. You are listening to your words and trusting that whatever you hear is whatever it is that calls to be recorded in this moment.” -Mark David Gerson
    Your voice and your truth flow through your paintbrush.

  2. Your art is powerful, fresh and very original. Not many achieve that. Stand tall and enjoy your show. I know others will.

    Wishing you all the best!

  8. You are an amazing inspiring artisit! Your work always blows me away! No need to listen to the negative self talk! Tell it to button up and take a hike :o) When I met you at your grande prairie show I didn’t see one bit of nerdy scardey cat…and I thought you were too cool for me :o) LOVE your wonderful heart you put into all your peices. Hopefully I can buy an original someday!! Still have the 3 postcards hanging in my studio. Congrats on the great show!! :o)
