Recently I went to Asheville, NC to an artist workshop called Mastermind. It is part of the Matt Tommey Mentoring Group -Created to Thrive - I belong to. It was incredible. We got to discuss art, the business of doing art, heard some great speakers - Mark DeJesus (author of Exposing The Rejection Mindset) and Shae Bynes (author of Grace Over Grind). Just wow. And the connections made with other artists who want to thrive was priceless.
One of the things I walked away with was a new direction for my art. I've been wondering for awhile what direction I should take. I feel Fantasy and Whimsical Art is where my passion lies. I've loved unicorns, dragons, and fairies for as long as I can remember. They are rich in symbolism and spark the imagination. Take the unicorn for instance: it symbolizes infinite possibilities, pursuit of dreams, gentleness yet power, purity, overcoming, and hope to name a few.
So, I am changing direction. My paintings will be to capture the magical wonder of creation through the use of fantasy and realism and daring you to dream.
