Hello friends.......I hope you all are enjoying the weekend. I am so thankful for the sunshine today in London as we have been plagued with awful weather which seems to be delaying SPRING.
I just wanted to share with you some of my paintings I did back in 2010 when I started to paint in earnest for public consumption.
I have grown so much since then as an artist and therefore as a person. My journey as an artist has taught me so much about life....to live outside my comfort zone and face my fears. When I show my Paintings I hold my heart up for the world to see and therefore I am open to encouragement, support, delight , disappointment, criticism and compliment. I am more emotionally robust for putting myself through this experience time and time again.
It is a wonderful and enriching experience to face your fear , however small and conquer it! It sets you free and opens up a world of greater opportunity and prospects. While I have been painting for many many years I did so quietly and privately just for myself and loved ones..............and now I do it openly and freely and put it out here for the world to view.
So if you have a dream, desire or wish and fear is holding you back I encourage you to try to face it , head on and experience the elation and freedom it brings when conquered!
Fears I had and conquered-; using a computer, being on Facebook, uploading photos, making videos, flying, having children, abandonment.
Current fear I am conquering-; learning to drive! wish me luck.
If you faced any of your fears recently or in the past and would like to share, please do, as it may encourage others.
Very Best Wishes to you.....Chelsea.
