Today is one of those thoughts-filled days. Wondering as an artist what styles I should paint more of, which are not my strength but maybe I am holding on to too tightly. I love the new coffee painting adventure, and have gotten really good feedback, and I so enjoy some local linework like this one of Smith Rock, my falls painting and mountains paintings. But I have to admit a (often) it is hard to decide what to pursue as an artist. Is it okay to not have a very defined style?? I don't know. 🌱🌱🌱🌱
I feel very new, having come to this later in the game than many, I haven't had the years to focus on admiring artists and art and developing my style. I graduated from college majoring in Spainsh Literature and History, and immersed myself in raising my family. Since then I've been full-time homeschooling my boys teaching (and relearning) algebra, biology, and the history of ancient Europe and I can feel completely out of the artist's loop. Not at all because I am left out, but because I don't even know what I don't know!!
🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿 These are just some thoughts on my thoughts-filled day today. It is a good day to spend in thought, the skies are grey, I have a strong cuppa, the rains keep falling, I sent out my orders yesterday and it is Friday. I love that it is Friday. 🖤
