|Canvas #9: using acrylic paints|
|Canvas #16: using oil paints|
|Canvas #17: Using oil paints, acrylic paints, and acrylic inks|
I was wrong.
First of all, I am probably not going to finish all 100 canvases this year. It doesn't really matter, though, because becoming an artist doesn't work like that. (If in fact, you actually do BECOME an artist.)
Becoming an artist (I'm learning) requires a lot of soul-searching. A lot of letting go.
of previously held beliefs
of one's *idea* of what an artist is. Hint: You don't have to be a painter of canvases to be an artist.
And letting go must be THE hardest goal I have yet to set.
Good thing I love a challenge. ;)
P.S. I post (a lot of) my paintings on my instagram: ayanared. Follow me!
P.P.S. I post pretty much everything (videos, blog posts, paintings) on my personal facebook page (add me as a friend and let me know how you know me in a message). I am getting rid of my business page soon (although it seems that my numbers are rising! :-/...).
Thank you for reading!
