Why am I here on deviantart? It has been 7 years. Only a fraction of my art is here. I love this community! I'm more of a lurker than anything. We are connected more than ever, there is so much we can learn! Don't stop now, keep on going. Art is my everything. I can't live without it, as frustrating as it may be at times.
Biggest mistake I have made in the past was expecting too much. My hand was moving but my mind wasn't following. Or vice versa. Not sure. They were working as separate entities. Once I felt the groove it made more sense. Engaging my left brain while trying to get creative was another trick I had to learn. Listening to instrumental music, natural light and green tea helps to kick in my r-mode. There's always that nagging voice, that doubter or hater in the back of your mind. There's another voice up there that's stronger but perhaps we are afraid of what we can accomplish? Afraid that we will discover this strength in us, a different trail of thoughts. Change is scary, even if we know it's for the better. Kind of like quitting smoking, it has a strong grasp on us that we forget what's normal. When we reach this "normalcy" it's a high. I can't believe I've been missing out on this incredible journey! But this is not about smoking, that's only my personal battle.
Good luck everyone on your artistic journeys!
Oh baby baby it's a wild world!
