"The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself." -Anne Quindlen I decided to start blogging, again. I used to write more than I painted. Not that I was very good at it, but I enjoyed jotting down my thoughts. People say a big part of being an artist is about selling yourself. I have never really liked myself very much, so the thought of selling myself, let alone my art was terrifying and unthinkable. That was 5 years ago. In the process of learning to accept my art, I've come to learn to accept who God made me to be. In learning to enjoy my art and share it with others, I've come to learn the importance of sharing one's self. These are hazy reflections of my artist's journey.
