30 Days of Making Art and Sharing Beauty and Inspiration with the World
I've been thinking about bringing back the Creative Thursday blog and hello, there's no time like the present.
It feels like the perfect timing since my Art business truly began when I started the practice of daily painting. Creative Thursday was born out of a desire for my creativity when I was working a 9 to 5 job and having just celebrated my 13th year as a Working Artist, I'm feeling the desire to commit to a daily practice again.
In light of global events inspiring so much inward time at home, now is the time.
Want to join me in a movement of making Art and sharing beauty for 30 days? ✨
How are you doing out there? Are you in panic or aware but not afraid. 🖤
I haven’t addressed anything related to the health scare that is happening by choice. If you notice I almost never address mainstream media topics on my social channels, because most of them are wrapped in so much fear, I can't & I won't take it in or spread it.
Every day I am growing in my dedication to a consistent practice of choosing the tone to my day- who and what information I invite into my world. And I am fiercely protective of it. I spent one too many years being reactive instead of proactive. Allowing the outside world to determine my mood and tone of my day is not something I accommodate anymore.
I'm a business owner, an entrepreneur, a human. I've been through cycles, and seasons, wins and losses. I know I am resourceful and that within problems are solutions, possibilities and opportunities for something better to be born.
I jumped on a live video last Thursday and I posted it to IGTV expressing my thoughts on what it means to be an Artist especially during times like these. ❤️
Please never underestimate the value of the gifts that you have as an Artist to share.
Imagine if everyone stopped sharing the beauty they create in all different kinds of expression, what would the world feel like without it.
We need it more than ever. If you are a Maker, and Artist please share your gifts during this time especially ~and if you'd like to join us in a 30 day challenge I invite you to use the hashtag #stockpilebeauty named by Corri Sheff to share your creations with us.
One of the most effective ways I set the tone to my day is through creativity. My business aside, making Art is one of the most important tools I have to feel grounded, find joy and connect with my heart. And to share, with the intention of bringing light and beauty to you today, there's nothing better.
I know in one small way I can make a difference. ❤️
