UpSiDe DoWn (I didn't even get dizzy1)

Tea Bag Art Tuesday #7
Woo-Hoo!  
I drew her UpSiDe DoWn and you get to watch me!
Please take time to watch my video.
I am new to the world of video taping myself while I create.  I am usually "free flowing".

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel even share it with your friends and family.
Also... give me a Thumbs Up!
Your support, encouragement, and (kind) suggestions are welcomed.

This is where you can meet emerging artists

I am pleased to be presenting my art at another Artists Pop-Up Gallery.
I get excited when I can be in the presence of other emerging artists.
YET... the icing on the cake is meeting YOU.
I'll be there and look forward to chatting with YOU.

Intuitively creating

Previously  I spoke about one way that I practice creating art.  I prep some pages from waste paper that had been on my art table.  (CLICK HERE)

I am in the midst of working on 3 commissioned pieces and I felt like creating art with abandon, without concern of the outcome.  So... I grabbed one of those pages.
I did a raw umber glaze to the entire page.
Enhanced some of the markings.
Then with a  little charcoal, PanPastels, and acrylic paint this is what I intuitively created.

how to get out of your own way

My mind was swirling last night when I tried to sleep.  
I decided not to just lay there.  I got out of bed and went into my studio.
I pulled out supplies - water color paper, loose charcoal, charcoal pencils, PanPastels.
I said a little prayer of surrender...
I began...
she intuitively appeared
As much as I don't like to admit it there are times when 
fear, doubt, and worry creep into my thoughts and heart. 
I feel like I should have already dealt with this fear stuff and it should never rear it's ugly presence again.  
Then BOOM... here I am.  Wrapped up in it again!
I've identified what some of the outside triggers are.  Most times I am ready to meet them head on.  
Then there are times when all of sudden I'm in their grip.
To be honest, it usually happens when I have been remiss on focusing on the good in my life.
When I am lacking in my daily positive reinforcements.
It comes down to this...
I have choices.
I could hang onto those outside triggers and blame them for my fear
OR
I can accept reality that there is nothing or no one that can stop me from being who I am suppose to be or what I am suppose to doing with my life, EXCEPT me.
I get in my own frickin' way!  
The negative emotions and thoughts wrap themselves around me until I feel paralyzed as if I have no way out.  That's simply not true.
The truth is... I ALWAYS have a choice

I detest being in a negative space.  
It's when I do the hard soul work, focus on finding resolves,  make the necessary changes, and get back into my positive  routines  that I come back stronger,  perhaps a little wiser.
I'll remember this...
The only thing in my way is me.

Thank You for your 
continued support and encouragement.
