I am so excited about this new turn in my life! I am planning my very first online art class!
I’ve taken so many workshops online in the past few years, but I never really stopped to notice how much work goes into it all. It’s a huge job. It’s time consuming. And I know that’s one thing a lot of us who have kids or/and day jobs have very little of: time.
But I am a determined person, and anyone who knows me even just a little bit knows nothing will stop me once I decide on something!
So here’s to all you ladies out there who are determined, who juggle work with art and kids, and who always find the time to show up no matter what. Keep doing what you do, keep showing up, because it definitely pays off. Sometimes that’s what keeps me going. All the sleepless nights, painting with bad light, putting up with all kinds of crap at work, well its all just so WORTH IT when you create isn’t it? When someone resonates with your work, or when someone else is inspired by it, it just makes it all so worth the while.
I created my very first video the other day, which was actually a try out while I was learning how to use the editing program for my online class. You can watch it on You tube here:
So if you like my work and want to discover your own special magic – or maybe you already have your own magic but are curious to try something new, don’t forget stay tuned for the upcoming details of my super exciting, very first online class! I wish I could announce it already but that would be getting ahead of myself, lol!
And if in the meantime I don’t post as much art on my Facebook or Instagram page, well that’s because I’m filming for my lessons, and ofcourse that’s a surprise! 🙂 But I am also doing Jane Davenports’ awesome mermaid workshop “Vitamin sea” at the same time so I can have some inspiration and playtime in my journal once in a while, (playtime is very important!) so I will be posting those. Here is a peek of the start of my storybook journal…
So, all of you gorgeous art souls out there, the best advice I can give you today is to just ‘show up’ even it’s just a little tiny bit each day. Creating regenerates your soul, frees your mind and keeps the inspiration fresh and your imagination flowing! Go get those brushes out and make a mess, have fun, and don’t forget to post your work so I can see it! 🙂
Oh! And stay tuned for a super fun video where I will be showing some of my journals, even from a couple of years ago! It’s always fun to see how our work evolves isn’t it! Fun fun fun!
