What's the meaning of all this?

I would like to consider myself an artist (or at least I aspire to be one someday). But I’m having a terrible time getting very far down this road. My hope is that by starting this blog and sharing my journey that I will be able to work through my issues, learn how to make beautiful art, and truly enjoy the process again.

At some point I think I decided I had to commit to something, become really good at it, and be happy doing that one thing forever. Maybe throughout this process I will actually find that one thing that keeps me going and gets me up in the morning…or maybe my thing is to create lots of different kinds of art. I really don’t know, but I’m anxious to get started and find out!

My plan is to experiment with lots of different materials and document my creative journey along the way. I’m going to give myself permission to dive into color, texture, and pattern, and simply allow myself to “play” again.

I’m new to the whole blog idea, but I think this “journal” will keep me accountable and force me to grow and create more than I have been able to on my own in the past. I want to challenge myself to keep going and set new goals for myself along the way.
