I have EMERGED……….that is my word of the year for 2010….and I have had a great year so far doing just that! I picked this word to create an intention for myself to get my Art out into the world and to let others see who I really am. I had been letting small pieces of myself out…you know, the easy to do stuff. I’ve had no problem making jewelry and knitwear to sell; or teaching classes and doing some workshops out and about. That is something that I have been doing for many years now. BUT…I wasn’t really sharing my passion for painting until I picked my word of the year. ..EMERGE. I have now created a few new paintings and have mustered up the courage to show them in a couple of shows. I have also started this blog and joined the many who have an online presence. It was a lot scarier in my mind than in reality… I must admit.
I’m inviting you to join me on my Journey. Join me on my path of Emerging. Join me in celebrating my Creative Courage. Together we can leap upwards towards our Big Dreams.
