Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: It Takes Courage To Honor What Your Heart Is Telling You
The voice is getting louder - more insistent. It was a whisper for awhile. A faint cry from my innermost being - the call to be an artist. And for so long it felt as if the faint cry was coming from behind a closed (and locked) door. But instead of trying to break down the door and burst through to the other side, in many ways I have spent time piling things up against the door - placing obstacles in my way - not allowing myself to even see the possibility that the door can be opened and I can walk through. But now the faint cry has becoming a yearning - a scream - and nothing, not even everything I have piled in front of the door, can keep me from moving forward. So with brush in hand and puddles of color before me I have been painting. Painting because I have to. Painting because I want to. Painting because the colors are flowing in my blood. I am becoming more courageous - even in the midst of my fears. I am listening to what my heart is telling me.
Today I am sharing another Paper Expressions video. My process with paint, brush and paper - as I learn to listen to my heart. Enjoy!
