I make art. I love making art for others. It's always fun. I love to gift art for any number of reasons, to make someone feel special, to honor a family member (#dogsarefamily #dogsarelife), to celebrate a birthday, holiday, or housewarming etc. It's easy and fun making a new piece.
But this is the first time I've really made art that feels like it's in a professional capacity, as a professional artist.
I'm a touch late to start as I was super low energy, and even though I'm feeling better now, there's this dread that I have to get started because I don't want to Feck it Up! 😂
I've never really worried that I will Feck something up that I'm giving out of the goodness of my heart, that a person doesn't expect to receive. Because of the not expecting it, there is so much less mental pressure that I out on myself.
BUT... I am STRONG. I am more than my anxiety. And it is with goodness in my heart that I make this piece, like every other.
So it is with nervousness and anxiety AND excitement, that I make this piece for a beautiful person, of her beautiful cat.
Earlier this week I did the outline (pencil, easy, no pressure) and today I started the fur (pen, more pressure).
I am trusting myself.
She trusts me.
And I trust that I will find my flow. And either way, it's what I love to do. Make art. And make art for others. ❤️❤️❤️👌
Trust yourself. Trust you know what you're doing. Even if it's something completely new.
P.S. Yes, I am actually having fun and I'm trying some new techniques too! Woo! Yay me! 🙌🌻😎🌞
