Mid December

Hello. This is just a quick note – for myself as well as the next artist.

I have been studying Art for a long time. Recently, I have upgraded the input into my mind and am in a flurry of learning and practice. This is how it works for me. :)

I felt inspired to write, perhaps because we are all artists here.. and I’ve been picking up on vibes which are real, valid and expected. Mostly the vibes I get are positive… but occasionally the stress is palpable.

Listen up! (remember that I am talking to myself).
Run your own race. Strengthen your relationship with your Own art. Study the art and thoughts of others without fear. Have discipline and make.

Over simplified but the message is true.

If I was a horse in a horse race – alondside equally loved and talented horses – I would have my blinkers on whilst running. I don’t want to be distracted from the end goal… winning my own race. (ART BLINKERS)

But at the end of each race… there is a paddock with soft, green grass and lots of spunky race horses from all over to eat and share race experiences with. We eat the grass which is always greener.

I haven’t won a major art race yet… people keep betting on me though and I run like a little trooper to acknowledge that faith…. even when I don’t think I want to run anymore and the idea of becoming glue is … ok. Bearable. For years, I have felt content being the loser of these races. And now I know why… I am actually winning. I am winning my own race. I am making great time. It is hard work but I improve every day.

Be Good.
Make Art.
Play nice.
Have Faith.
