I once tried to work my way through the book,  The Artist Way.  The journey turned out to be a bit of a train wreck. I wasn’t in the right headspace to explore my heart.  My morning pages typically started out strong then devolved into rants about my ineptitude.  I realized however, through the process that  I associate artistry of all kinds (particularly music)  with disappointment and mild depression. As a result, I have spent years trying to be anything but the creative type.

But, after being encouraged by my spouse to venture back into the wild, I took a class and found that I down right love painting.   I am still amateur hour, but at least the hour is enjoyable. I recently got up the courage to set up an ETSY page. I still question the decision, but here is the link just in case you fancy the Seahawks, or just really feel like you need a giant flamingo on your wall. https://www.etsy.com/shop/Heatherleelovely

I am not posting the ungodly amount of paintings here that did not work out, but I plan to at some point.  Having those in those in the mix would make the journey you see below more authentic and interesting…not to mention hilarious.
