During this time I have continued to create daily. I completed my 4 paintings for the Philadelphian Art Show, participated in the All Creatures juried exhibition at Beauty Art Gallery and the Philadelphian Art show. I have made new "skully" Hand braided Shambala bracelets in different colors ( available at www.moonsirens.etsy.com ) lots of photos and working on 3 new pieces of art for my "energy series".
These past 3 years have been really interesting. One different New year's resolution has brought so many changes in my life, for the better. I didn't realize that my wanting to paint/create every day would seep into the rest of my life and improve all areas. I am in much better health, shape and spiritual comfort than I have ever been. I am taking more chances and facing fears one by one. And in the midst of all of these I am finding a strong artistic voice. Don't get me wrong- every step scares me and freaks me out. What if my creations don't find an audience, what if people don't get my point of view. What if I am no good...
The list goes on and on. I am choosing to silence the voices. I am choosing to venture in areas I haven't before. And because of this- July was really rough. I had to go to some deep emotional waters that I would have rather not. It hasn't been easy, but I do pray that when I get to the other side that it will free me from the chains that have been holding my spirit and creativity down and let me fly.
In the meant time, I am asking for all the people that I know to help me get to Paris to exhibit my works and get Grant money for my Art. Go to http://moonsirens.see.me/atp2013 and click vote. You have to sign up with them but it is for a good cause... :D ME!!! I so want to do this
So since I didn't post for all this time, I will not add all the pictures but some highlights.
My goal now till the end of the year is to be able to find a way to manage my activities so I have time to at least post on my Art blog once a week. 3 mos of no posting is not acceptable and it causes blocks in my creativity.
