At etsy where i have my little online shop, there is a new feature they'd like us to incorporate, called "about" (link goes to my "about" page). In this section we're to write what makes us tick, or how we make our creations.
Despite my anguish about having to put down my philosophy, the exercise really was good for me. It forced me to seriously think about why i create. I thought of two artists that i admire and their outlooks. One, Russ Potak, said to "paint with abandon". Another, Kim Collister, a "sister" via Inspiration Avenue, talks about being brave and fearless.
I am trying to be brave enough to listen to the voice that's deep inside trying to get out, not to hold back and be safe. Little by little, more and more, I've been listening to that voice and as i do i see my art getting more expressive, bolder and more abstract!

I'm not sure where this heart is taking me on my artistic journey, but i hope to be brave and fearless on it!
