Did you know I consider myself a "closet artist" ? When the longing to create is loud enough and an idea comes to mind, I hunt for my paintbrushes and I dust them off. I collect my acrylics, stencils, watercolors and sharpies together before I begin. Once upon a time not so long ago, I even entered my art in the Ely Art walk (a community art show) so that I could feel better about my "artist" label and because it was a personal goal to attain. I've never sold any of my paintings because often times, I convince myself that I am not good enough. The negative self-talk can be very dissuading when trying to gain the courage to create prints or to make an income from a finished product. More importantly, I love the way I feel when I ~am~ making or painting. During the process, I lose myself in music and the concentrating on the slow brush strokes. I am impressed by my own talent after completing a piece, but eventually I go on to overthink whatever it is I made- and I either quit or I try to continue adding more to it to change it. #closetartist#create#paint#acrylics#elyartwalk#artistic#creative#creativeoutlet#passionforart#canyoumakeart#artiswhoiam#artisapartofme#sharpie#mixedmedia#woodlandbedroom#arthanging#amatureartist#artsy
