So, it's been a little hard to keep the ole blog updated. It's been a very hard summer on my side of town, but I think I am ready to get back on my game. I've experienced some of life's major stresses this summer; death of my cousin, leaving a job, starting a new job, moving into our first home, and losing about seventy-five percent of my artwork on my computer. So, I haven't really been in the mood for blogging needless to say. I spent the whole summer trying to recover from all the madness but I think I am in a place where I'm ready to start focusing on my art and jewelry again. I am hoping to be more consistent with my blogging....well,... we'll see how it goes.
Much to my delight, I HAVE started painting again. Yes! There's a lot of images floating around my head and heart that's been dying to get out so I had to pick up a brush. I get really nervous about putting my artwork out there for the world to see so I am feeling very vulnerable right now by doing this. But, I am working on facing my fears so I have decided to include my artwork in my post. The Bible says that we all have gifts and I am determined to use mine to uplift my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. So, here's one of the paintings I've done recently. It's called Take Flight. There is so much I want to accomplish in this life and I think it is really time to FOCUS and get it done.
I am at the point of being tired of living the same story...you know..."I am going to live my dreams", but nothing happens. I seem to be making progress, but not fast enough. I don't know what it is that holds me back, but I am ready to move. So, here's to taking some action, and taking flight!
I hope all is well on your end!
