And the second painting I came up with was this.
One of the songs that played while I was working was the song "I will wait" by Mumford and Sons. One line kept running through my head. Trust my head and my heart. I think maybe that is the underlying theme of these paintings. I'm taking some big steps toward aligning my head with the desires of my heart. Part of that is taking a leap into the whole process of working as an artist I have so much to learn and so much room to grow in my work but I'm following my heart and not letting the insecurity of my mind hold me back!!
PS. One of the steps I am taking is to create a little newsletter list for my art. I've been kind of using facebook for communicating about my work but facebook has started to hide post unless you buys ads. Which kind of stinks for the little guy. So, I thought I'd set up a mailing list. Don't worry, I won't spam you. I'm just planning on emailing every couple of months. Just shop updates, upcoming shows (what?!!) and other art related fun. If you'd like to be on the list . . . sign up below.
P.P.S. If you are interested . . . I have prints of these available over at my etsy store.
