I’m at the very beginning of a journey. A creative biz journey which is a fusion of creativity and soul. It’s early days, but I’m loving it. I’ve been pondering the answer to the question “why”… Why do I want to create art? Why do I want to sell it? When all else is peeled away, what lies beneath my passion for creating? Why do I paint? Well I’m honing in on the answer folks, but it’s still quite a whorl of thoughts. Suffice to say, this quote (above) from Marianne Williamson comes pretty close to explaining my why. I believe that life is short. I know it’s not a dress rehearsal. I believe we are all created with a beautiful uniqueness which needs to shine out into the world. I believe the world needs to see each of us push against our boundaries and find our potential. I believe that is a scary thing – something many of us fear ( I mean, life is comfortable right?) That when we do that – when we do give ourselves permission to seek our potential, we may just find something beyond our imagining – and that folks, is a scary thing.
But I’m up for it. The gauntlet has been layed down and I for one am keen to know. How far can I grow?
