"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint', then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced."
Vincent Van Gogh
I recently did something that terrified me. I decided that I would make visual art (although I use the word art very loosely) every day for 100 days and share what I made. To some of you this might not sound terrifying, but I have lived so long with the believe that I could not draw, that I am not an artist, that I am not a designer, that the thought of doing these things and sharing the results with the world...well, yes, terrifying.
The result of the 100 days was surprising though, because I loved it. I created a lot of junk, but I enjoyed it. I had fun. I got to the end of the 100 days and I wanted to keep going.
And somewhere along the way I created a handful of things that I really truly liked. You can find a few of those things I liked available for digital download in my store, along with my book on creativity, which explores this idea of stepping into the things that terrify and draw us and learning to follow curiousity into creativity no matter the outcome.
