…but in fact, today it is the amateur–the enthusiast who pursues her work in the spirit of love..
Yes, that’s me! The words of Show Your Work go on to say that amateurs aren’t afraid to make mistakes and don’t think about looking ridiculous because they are in love with their work. I’m obsessed. I’m an artist! Art is what I do! I’ve never painted roses before. I paint expressive and abstract wildflowers.
Yet here I am painting roses and building content for the roses book. The roses book will be a friendship book for the spirit, the soul–my spirit, and my soul. What if I share my heart and people shatter it. Can they really? No.
I want to paint the way roses make me feel when I’m out for my walk. I see white roses and that purity and innocence captivate me. I imagine and wonder. It’s beautiful. When I create I don’t care about what others think. It’s not even on my radar. As I painted Spirit of Love I made mistakes. I kept painting. And I’ll keep painting.
Let today’s post be about painting with the spirit of love. Far too often, we define ourselves by outside forces instead of relying on intrinsic value. The passion, the voice is here, always has been.
