Get Lost In The Details

Today's Lesson From The Art Room: Get Lost In The Details

For the past few days I have found myself getting into a trance-like state while adding lots of small details to the art pieces that I am working on. Adding small dots and dashes of white. Making small circles with a black acrylic paint marker. Layer upon layer. Detail after detail. It has become my form of meditation. A way into that place where your mind goes quiet and you are intensely focused on the present moment and what is right in front of you. Excuse me while I go and get lost in the details :) If you want to see more of the art that I am creating, come follow me on Instagram @michellejoywecksler.

Happy 2020!!! I Am On Instagram!!!!

Happy 2020 to you!!!! It has been a long time since I have posted to my blog and a lot has transpired in that time. One of the most significant shifts for me has been to finally grant myself some space and time to feel into a shift in my identity. To finally begin to truly embrace my identity as an artist. This is an ongoing process for me, but I am happy to say that it is a process that I am fully engaged in and enjoying because it is authentic and aligned deeply with who I am. One of the things I have had timidity around is sharing my art in a more open way. In the past, I have had days where I have felt brave and have put some of my original work out there. Other days I have felt like hiding in a corner where no one can see me. But I am feeling more courageous now. Especially as 2020 has arrived. Every time I say or hear or read 2020, I think 20/20 - that amazing standard that is set for perfect vision. So for me, 2020 is just that - a year for clarity and vision - around who I am, my goals, my place in this wonderful life. So, as part of my goal of sharing my art in a more open way in 2020, I decided to join Instagram and start posting images of what I'm working on. So far I have begun to share works in progress or images from the pages of my art journal. Sharing my work publicly is a big step for me in the journey of fully embracing my identity as an artist. If you have any interest in my journey, please feel free to stop by my instagram at michellejoywecksler. I would love to hear from you :) Thank you for helping me be seen and for continuing to be a part of my journey!!!!! Wishing you a 2020 filled with vision and clarity!!!!!

Not Buying Your Myth by MJoy

An original rap/poem I wrote about not buying into the myths that are designed to keep you from moving forward and being yourself!  Caution:  some profanity used during this rap.
