Happy Pink Saturday
When I first began to dream of being an artist it was only by accident. My other dreams were of creating a beautiful home, being creative, learning to cook and going to school to get my degree in Business and Art. Luckily for me all those dreams have come true. You know the feeling when everything is coming together and it's all good stuff. When you don't want to move or talk because you don't want to screw it up? Well, that is what has happened. Just Friday I found out, by accident that I was nominated as Artist of Elko Readers's Choice. Wow!!!!! How sad for me that because I don't get the newspaper I didn't even know. But, a friend on facebook mentioned she voted for me.
Just being nominated is a great honor. When I started painting the artwork was just for me to help me recover from a back injury. Little by little I must be reaching people and creating an audience.
So my message today is, take a risk, put your boots on, and start walking one step at a time to reach your goal. REACH A LITTLE FARTHER INSIDE YOURSELF EACH DAY. If you can't reach that big goal, break it down to smaller goals. Everything you think about can be done, might have already been done. I read a lot of biographies of artists to see how they did it. Consider reaching out and asking for help.
Celebrate the small steps you have reached. When you have reached a goal set new ones. Be curious, active and grateful.
