Surprisingly there hasn’t been much pink or red in my Valentine’s Day countdown. I explored the shape and even looked at how I incorporate hearts in my art. What I have really had to deal with is self-love. I lost all of the work for De Colores. Now that I think of it, I should probably change the name. I will but I love De Colores. I’ll change the name. Then there was this question on James Victore’s IG live. What do you do when you feel like you’re the only one who believes in your work? I know I have a few fans and I appreciate them. I believe in my blooms BUT I feel like something is missing. I have many of the pieces to a good puzzle, yet a few are missing. I know that I need to create more and do less thinking. I have come to realize the most important lesson of being an artist.
Being an artist, isn’t about skill, it’s about mindfulness. An artist knows that energy, that force, the creative spirit and they just pick up the tool and paint.
Skill is what comes afterward. What do you think? I’ll open up comments for this post.

Love the tulips ❤ and this depends skill can be genetics, for example I can draw (i dont try i have never taken an art course or applied it… however in drawing I would not say I am an artist). I copy i imitate I do not create… skill can be learnt there are some with a natural ability that can give an advantage… but art is not skill 👍
Good points. Sometimes I see an art piece and it’s the color or what it says that moves me.
