Artist Inner Critic

Artist Inner Critic

I was working with someone last week and they were talking about the dreaded inner critic. I gave them some action steps to help them and they found them helpful. So, I decided to make a video. In hindsight, I should have filmed before 6 hours of studio work. Lesson Learned!

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. -John Muir

I have a deep appreciation and connection to nature. Daily, I step outside of my studio to listen to the sounds the trees make and the songs the birds sing. This is one of many conscious choices I make to stay grounded and in the present moment. This piece titled “Nature is Calling” is 30″ x 30″, Acrylic Paint on Canvas.

I’m constantly in a state of experimentation that feels exciting yet vulnerable at times. With this painting “Heading Home”, I played around with the perspective to create more depth. Loving the end result.
