Paper Expressions 7: A Video!!!!

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!

There was never a doubt in my mind that you were a true artist. It makes my heart sing to read that you're finding the courage to listen to your own. Your creations are beautiful, your process is fascinating, your passion is inspiring. I am so honoured to know such a talented artist, and so blessed to call you friend. XO
