Growing Creatively

"Sandia Backdrop"
Dr. Lonnie Peets with her purchase
To the left is my framed oil painting "Sandia Backdrop" I painted for my chiropractor and friend, Dr. Lonnie Peets which I delivered to her today.  To the right is Dr. Peets very happily holding the painting which will be auctioned off this coming Friday at her equine association ball silent auction.

I'm very grateful for the opportunities which have been presenting themselves to me and for the wonderful network of friends I have accumulated in the past couple of years.  I am walking through many fears as I grow creatively as an artist and also find that as I gain confidence and encouragement from others I become more willing to take the risks needed to be successful.  I am often reminded of something Julia Cameron talks about in her book "The Artist's Way" which started me out on the path of being an artist "Leap and the net will appear".  I am leaping and the net is, so far, appearing.  Thanks to my creator for always having my back and always giving that nudge, love and acceptance I need.
