Making leaps is hard. I thought I was doing great because I took all the proper steps to become a practicing artist. I took the first step to start creating art. Starting is always the hardest part, so great job to me. Then, I got the courage to share my art with the world. I feel my skin getting thicker and that feels great, too. I am disciplined and consistent in practicing my craft. I draw and paint almost daily, even if it was just for 20 mins sometimes. I have to say that t...

As an artist, I love starting myself on new projects. Starting is always fun, exciting and hopeful. The feeling of busting a door open and going for it is exhilarating. Keeping them going, however, isn't always as easy for me.

Self-doubt is the killer of creative consciousness and ultimately, happiness. The negativity that a creative self-doubting loop generates often permeates into ot...

Tried watercolor for the first time after watching some Youtube videos. I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Challenge myself to new things keep me motivated and inspired! 

It is 2018! Another year on the calendar, another chance to set new year's resolutions. I ceremonially wrote down goals for myself and tried to follow goal-setting best practices - how they have to be measurable, reasonable, achievable, etc. At the same time, I started wondering about why I have to...

“I suck at this…”

“No, you don’t, you just need more practice.”

“Am I ever going to be good at this?”

“Of course you will! It just takes time…”

“How much time??”

“Well, that depends, you have to be patient. They say about 10,000 hours.”

“That’s... a long time………..” SIGH.

Have you ever had a similar conversation with yourself or someone else? I used to - often. It was a typical conversation by an ameteur, and that was me then. 

I have always dreamed of living a creative and artistic...
