Here's a painting that I started and finished in one day last week. I was feeling very inspired and figured I would just start a piece, but once I got started, I couldn't stop. I love when that happens! I just went with it and let it flow through me, and didn't even acknowledge my inner critic.
I feel that this piece is for those of you out there who struggle with being able to call yourself an artist. It took me a long time to be able to say it without feeling like a liar. I would be able to say "I paint", or I make art", but I couldn't call myself an artist. It's funny that we can so easily recognize the ability in others, but can't see it clearly in ourselves.
So here it is, say it with me OUT LOUD...I AM AN ARTIST! Come on, you can do it! Say it! Or even better, you can call yourself an artiste! Fancy.
You ARE an artist, and you know what? It's not an accident that you like to create. God gave you this gift, so trust Him, He doesn't make mistakes. Trusting in Him and His abilities, means trusting in yourself, and your abilities.
