What do you do when things get so messed up you don't know
which direction to turn?
After I've done all I can, then thrown my hands up in the air, twirled around three times, and clicked my heels, yet everything is still sooooo wrong....I simply start over. Yes, I'm a big believer in Do Overs (as well as throwing, twirling and clicking). Sometimes you just have to hit that reset button and get on with your life.
John W. Gardner said "Life is the art of drawing without an eraser." As an artist, I understand this to mean we need the self-confidence to risk making mistakes and then learn from them so we don't keep messing up. It means I can fill up one page (or canvas, phase of my life, etc.) and if it doesn't come out exactly like I want, then I can choose to keep going forward and change the way I do things in the future, or I can choose to just give up and roll around in my self-pity and self-doubt (not a good option). So, here I am world...starting over with a new website and blog!

I love to make bold and vibrant acrylic and mixed media paintings. I can't help myself. It's just what I have to do. But I am passionate about art of all kinds, and I love to think, talk, and write about it, then share it with you. Please sign up for my Insider's List so we can keep in touch.
