June 2016

Stepping forward

Art Journaling and art altogether fulfill me. Nonetheless, it was a giant step for me to come out and show my creativity. My husband supports me in all I do and he's the one that keeps nudging me out, telling me to step forward. That's actually the reason why I've started blogging. 
The past months have shown me that my creativity "has an audience". Both "web" & "real" friends, and of course fellow bloggers have helped me with words of enthusiasm and encouragement.
I'm going through a process that I've never thought possible. Shedding off the old & negative. Now  surrounding myself with positive, creative and inspirational souls. I don't tend to need negativity. But then who actually does?

For an art journaler it's o.k. to not show their work. It's is a very private thing. But I also love to paint. I paint not only on paper, but of course on canvas and on wood (yes even driftwood!).
I feel that it's time to come forward with my art.
So that's why I'm stepping out. And I'm so happy to tell you that I'm one of 33 artists who will show their creations at a joint art exhibition. The preparations are in full swing.

I'm so thankful that you are walking with me on this wonderful & magical journey. Thank you!



Hugs,

  4. Liebe Michelle, du bist eine Bereicherung der Blog-Landschaft mit deinen so vielseitigen und inspirierenden Arbeiten! Wie gut, dass du dich entschieden hast, uns deine Kunst zu zeigen!
    Das Bild auf dem Katalog-Cover ist doch auch von dir... so wunderbar gemalt, so geheimnisvoll! Die Ausstellung wird ganz sicher ein Riesenerfolg und ich bin auf weitere Berichte gespannt. Ja, wie schade, dass du so weit weg wohnst!
    Ganz lieben Gruß von Ulrike
