Well, that just breaks my heart. OF COURSE you are an artist!
Each and every one of us has a unique and beautiful energy, and that translates into an infinite different ways to be creative….so maybe you just haven’t LET YOURSELF be an artist yet?
Why don’t you try? You know you want to. You certainly thought you were an artist in kindergarten! What happened? Maybe someone once told you that your drawing sucked, or maybe you tried to compare your adolescent doodles to Rembrandt and gave up. I’d like to invite you to step back into the ring– or the studio, if you will– and try your hand at being an artist again.
I’ll provide the beautiful scenery, all the art supplies and my humble experience as an artist. Heck, I’ll even make you lunch. All you have to do is give it a try. Take the leap. Trust yourself. Let go of expectations and bravely BECOME AN ARTIST!
I double dog dare you to.
