It’s your dream and nobody can take it away from you so go for it, pursue it!
There will be obstacles along the way, no doubt.
There will probably be anger, frustration and tears.
You will wish you had just stayed where you were. Where it was comfortable and safe.
But if you don’t give up, there will also be joy, discovery and excitement!
There will be growth because you will have refused to listen to those negative thoughts in your head that said it couldn’t be done, you just didn’t have it in you and you might as well forget it and do something else.
In the end, there will be pride (the good kind) and happiness as a reward for your courage, persistence and passion.
So, just do it: follow your heart!
I created this painting with the desire to try something new. I had to let go of limiting beliefs preventing me to reach a new point in my journey as an artist but I decided to push through regardless.
This a true mixed media painting: I used paper to add texture to the background, paint, watercolours, pens and pastels and added a few subtle silver highlights.
This is what it looks like when you open your heart and just decide to follow what it wants to do 🙂
