My He(ART)-Full Life

art(ing) etc

These past few days I have been feeling so blue and blah...PMS-ing, I think. Just this week I think I've gained like 5 lbs and I have no idea why!!! So this morning I just went into my studio to paint. As I sat down and started putting paint to canvas, stamping and dripping and gluing and smudging...I realised how sacred the act of creating is to me. To us all. There is just something about creating that makes me feel everything is right in the world. In my world, anyway:) It's challenging + frustrating for sure...but would we have it any other way??
I am doing a series of paintings that I mailing off and...I have to admit that I am filled with self doubt and nervous attacks. I know it's all part of the journey...but it still sucks when you are right in the middle of insecurity + inadequacy:) I know that the only way out is I am  trying to embrace all of my fears-walk right into them-and see what they have to teach me. I think it's this right believe in mySELF + my work.

* Also-super excited that my interview with Rita Banerji has been re posted here !!! Happy weekend friends. xxx

I so agree with you, Soraya, about how making art brings me back to my sense of self when I'm feeling out of sorts, etc. When I get out the paper and paint, and start, I realize that I am okay. Miss you. xx Jane

Seriously, what would we ever do without our creative outlets?? I discovered this fairly late in life, but oh my goodness, so glad I did. Hang in there, Soraya, and ... keep moving forward...
