Embracing Uncertainty

I am in the mode of feeling UNCERTAIN-about my art etc. It's the part of the creative process-of life, really, that is messy and uncertain and jumbled up! I kind of know the direction I want my art to go but...it's vague and in a whirlwind! So...I am trying to "sit with it" as Buddhists do and embrace what this moment is teaching me, really listen to my voice, my inner spirit and where it is trying to go. Nagging doubts and fears and insecurities...even these all have important lessons to teach me, they are an important part of my art, of myself. So I am trying to be in this space and still be very thankful for this journey:) It still feels very strange to me to be blogging about my creative process, my inner life....but it's also opening up a whole new world-where I can be more vulnerable and trust that the Universe will send me everything I need...to know, to be, to do. I am guided by my inner voice-I just need to listen...

Soraya - I love your blog. You are a very accomplished artist and very talented. The things people say about artists are that they struggle and when they create something they doubt if it is any good, or that others will not appreciate it.

This I say to you: Art is for you, no matter where it takes you when listening to your inner self, it is all for you in your personal space. If you accept and appreciate your abilities, others will follow.

Thank you for visiting my blog and giving me the opportunity to find yours.

Much peace,
Kimberly

I love this painting Soraya. Though you have times of uncertainty I sense a feeling of calm and reflection in this piece.
Don't you find that writing about your creative process brings clarity especially when overwhelmed by too many ideas. I have to keep reminding myself to think on paper because it almost always helps me to make decisions both in life and art.

We all share the same insecurity and self doubt at times. But thank goodness they don't last to long. To me, it's just before a breakthrough. You are very talented so don't worry.

I like your blog -- the art and your writing. Uncertainty makes us grow --and I have found that just enjoying the process and not worrying about the end result really helps. Wish you all the best. And thanks for stopping by my blog. looking forward to many more exchanges.
