The Soulful Artist

Life. Art. Transcendence.


Day 2 of 30 of my 30 Days Of Creativity Challenge.

When I first picked up a paint brush in late 2016, my “painting” was nothing more than a big, blue blob of blue paint on a canvas. It resembled absolutely nothing. But something happened to me that night. Something stirred and awakened within me. I looked at that blue blob painting for a long time. In fact, I still have that painting. It hangs on my wall.

My point is, you can’t be afraid of getting it wrong. There is NO wrong when it comes to your creativity. Everyone begins somewhere – at the beginning. When you worry about what you’re doing, or that it’s not good enough, you actually block your creative flow. You get in your head and you’re no longer in flow.

Had I allowed my blue blob to get in my head, I wouldn’t be where I am today – happily creating my own soulful art. I’m not a professional by any means. It took me a very LONG time to call myself an “artist.” I’m just doing what I love, practicing and creating and figuring it out as I go along. I’m just me doing me. 🙃

You do you. Whatever it is that you’re creating … enjoy your time, enjoy your process, allow what wants to emerge, emerge. Give yourself permission to express yourself! Just start.

My Day 2 painting is called “Serendipity.” My painting journey started as a happy accident –
All because I wanted to buy a painting that was way out of my budget and took a class from the artist instead to learn how to maybe paint something similar.
