I’ve been on a journey this year discovering new things within my art and myself. I have truly taken my word for the year “Curiosity” to heart.
In the process of stepping outside my comfort zone and trying new things, I’ve also started to realize what I’m truly passionate about in my art. This year has rekindled a love for so many things in my creative process.
As I started to get ideas for today’s project and doing a portrait, I said to myself “I’ve missed doing this… it feels like home.”
While our journeys take us in many directions, in art and in life…. there are some things that we just know are what we love and want to do. Our path can meander around a bit, and there are so many factors to that – life, family, job, you fill in the blank.
Today I share that if you feel like you’re not on the path you thought you would be… it serves a purpose, I promise!
I’ll share all about it in today’s video. I hope you enjoy the project and always know that you are loved.
