  • I had so much fun answering all of the questions that each of you took the time to submit yesterday! Some common questions that kept getting asked repeatedly were about how I have handled self doubt and insecurities with my work and what I did to overcome it all. I wrote this a little while ago but I think it bears repeating for those who may need to read it today: Painting can be an incredibly suffocating form of self expression if you sit down in front of your easel and aren’t willing to fully surrender to the vulnerability that it requires. I can’t tell you the amount of times when I first started out that my night would end in complete frustration because what sat before me lacked substance, depth, and a connectivity to even the simplest of emotions. What I failed to recognize then, was that what my hands were translating onto canvas was exactly what I showed up with. Self doubt, fear of failure, uncertainty… all of those wonderful things that can not be pushed down into the depths of your soul if you ever want to achieve your dreams and goals. For these past twelve years of my creative journey I have chosen to show up every single day and break down my own confines. I choose to be vulnerable, to be open to whatever needs to flow from heart to brush to canvas in that moment, and to go easy on myself if at the end of a night I stand back and the painting looks completely ridiculous. Why? Because no matter the outcome of my attempts, I am always learning, I am always growing, I am always getting better. To all of you brave souls out there trying to find your rhythm within your craft in those early stages, go easy on yourself. Self expression in any form is a terrifying journey, but I am here on the other side of self doubt telling you that there is no greater gift you can give yourself than taking pause and getting comfortable with those quiet and powerful moments of self reflection…

  • 葉片 煙霧 我們流淌的生命。
我們的所見所聞都不是一體兩面的。

永恆並不是指擁有無止盡的時間
而是不受時間的任何影響。
摒棄過去和未來,享受當下
那個當下即是永恆。
