This is touching me today
Thank you Joy for pinning this today. It is exactly what I needed to see. I keep alluding to an illness in my life that is making me change and evolve don't I? Well, I am alluding to it again here: I am looking at life with new eyes recently and my painting is changing too. I have turned down every project or collaboration, sale, or licensing consideration that would mean more work for me until 2014, at least. I am "going deep" and really focusing on expressing some ideas that are overwhelming me lately. Ideas that wake me up at night, ideas that I can see far away from me pulling me toward them. I don't care what happens, I just know that I have to create with my eyes closed for a while.

In the words of Albus Dumbledore "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities"

As an artist, if you just keep doing the same thing over and over again, you become a slave to your fickle audience at the expense of your potential to grow, to expand, to experience the exhilaration and adventure of the untrodden path. And once you've burned yourself out, utterly ruined your ability to be more than a monkey with a brush, that fickle crowd will dropnyou like a hot rock in favour of a new fad. Be brave Michelle, you are brilliant!ReplyDelete
You are amazing! :)ReplyDelete
Diggin down deep brings forth an artists spirit and I think you have done that here!ReplyDelete
