roses from mother’s day
I’m in the midst of creating my proposals to teach at Artfest 2012. This is, I think, the biggest and scariest step I’ve taken towards my dreams of becoming an artist and teacher. It’s what I’ve wanted since forever! When I was a young girl, shy with the enormous weight of feeling so insignificant, it was art that gave me my voice and carried me through school. It is art and creativity that gives me my voice now.
I’ve been struggling with what to make for my proposals. I’ve gone back and forth so many times it’s crazy. If it weren’t for that darn doubt, I’d be a little less crazy,nervous and done already. So, I’ve settled on two different projects (which i LOVE!) plus a possible third that is in the works. Everything is due June 3rd and I find out June 6th whether the projects have been picked or not. Eeeeekkkkssss! I want to get everything in by May 20th and I have so much to do still.
I’m not going to tell you what I’m making just yet. I’m just going to give you little peeks. I don’t want to spill the beans. But I promise to share more in June (when I find out that I’m in- keep your fingers crossed for me please)!
Some great words that have kept me motivated and inspired:
*About riding donkey style, by Goddess Leonie
* And then there is loving your doubts and giving it your all! Perfect timing.
