i paint what i see out of who i am.
i began teaching myself to paint in 2008. i've never looked back...well, mostly!
along the way, i've created ridiculous expectations and entertained lies about my worth/identity-
i'm no good; they don't "get" my art; no one's offered me a book deal; why am i not invited to be part of their artists' "in" crowd?; my website will never be marketable like hers; why don't my youtube videos get gazillions of hits in 3 hours like hers?; it's just too hard to take care of home and do this art thing; etc..
-and forgotten that this whole art thing started with and will always be about following God. it's been His pursuit of my messy soul and all the words of encouragement He's sent my way through people like you that has kept me in the studio. tru dat (trans- that's the truth!).
so, no matter what my internal dialogue is for the moment, painting is my method of processing my world and documenting how i am being unmade and remade by a wild and beautiful Creator. what a ride.
God has made us what we are [L For we are his handiwork/workmanship/work of art]. In Christ Jesus, God ·made [created] us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing. -ephesians 2:10
