I usually don't get too personal in my blog, perhaps dreading looking back in a few years time at a post with regret, but I'm going to now, just because this particular painting inspired me to start a new journal (a moleskine) for my thoughts. In doing so maybe you will identify a little more with the paintings, with me, or with your own private musings that never see the light of day (and probably for good reason).
'Alone'. This is how I feel. But I like it. In fact, it's delightful.
I never know what to do. I blunder.
I do consistently paint. For that I am happy.
I help others, now and then. I do my best.
Oh, the joy of being human.
Some online creators successfully hold a carrot on a stick, enticing all these women to believe they can sell their art, be in biz, etc. And these creators do model this well. But, sometimes it really bugs the shit out of me.
Interestingly enough I'm seeing some creators leaving behind old labels that they started out with...such as "the Goddess" or "the Astrologer". What will I leave behind?
If I was just an artist, how would that be?
Why do I struggle so?
I do love to empower women. I love being a witch. I am more than an artist. I am a guide. And so it is.
