The Fear of Making It.

The paralysis that comes from the fear of making a mistake is often the mistake…” 
 - Jason Hirschorn,
As they say, just do it. I always tell myself if I paint it they will come. It's my field of dreams.

If You've never failed you have never lived

With the Holidays coming up  like a fright train coming around the bend and I know you have so much to do just like me, it can be so over whelming. You feel like everyone else does it better, gets more done, and just seems to win when you fail.




Fell better now? I know I do.

Drawing the head demo

If your like me and drawing or painting the head is difficult here is a quick tutorial on how to draw the head. I can always draw it when the person is looking at mme but how do you do it when they are turned and you only see part of one of the yes ? How do you get that head tilt right?

I've been working on a painting for days try to get the shadows and tilt of the head just right. So I know how difficult it can be.

I hope this helps.

Creating art is not a bus ride to easy street.

Creating art is not a bus ride to "easy street".


What's your BIG idea? What challenges and excites you? What takes your breath away, keeps you up at night, makes you smile all day long?

Sometimes it's "distant and far away," but it's in there! Find it, dust it off, honor it. Pursue it! People will join you and things will unfold in amazing ways. Dream bigger dreams and take action. It's what makes life worth the living!

But here’s the thing: starting a business is always a lot harder than you think. More important is that you must think of your art as a business.You just need to know that it is, so that when you do go through harder moments, you can tell yourself that that is to be expected, and so you drive through it.

Successful creatives push through the pain because they know it is ‘supposed’ to be hard work. Then the rewards really do come.
