~Share The Love, Grow The Learning~
Challenge at http://gesso-dragon.blogspot.com/
The Challenge for this week was to
We were to go and search for an artist who spoke to our muse. Checking out You Tube, Blogs, Ustream etc... Well it wasn't hard to choose who was speaking to my muse.
That was Connie from Dirty Footprints Studio. Her links are above. She's been an artist I've following for some time. She has a way about her that just draws me to her.
Connie always encourages others with her words, art, yoga and belly love. One thing that had me facinated with Connie was her Fearless class. Now I wasn't able to take her class but her You Tube video was inspiring.
She speaks of how we need to just ignore the negative gremlin who tells us we can't be an artist, that we shouldn't create.
So I took it upon myself to listen to Connie when it came to painting. She paints so beautifully and freely. I've always drawn what I wanted to paint in. This time I went FEARLESS and did it free hand. I can tell ya there were many times I wanted to just toss it. I kept starting & stopping. But I pushed through listening to Connie's words. BE FEARLESS!
So here's my girl throwing her hand in the air, telling fear to back off!
She's FEARLESS NOW!
