Sharing My Soul {6/52}

This one is dedicated to my mom. Thank you for always supporting me and for encouraging me to follow my heart.

Sharing my art is like sharing my soul. It can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster, with fear and doubt mixed with excitement and inspired bliss. When I started this project, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to come up with enough ideas to keep going for 52 weeks. Then I decided to take a different approach at the beginning of this year, by exploring my inner most thoughts and emotions. I was scared because I wasn't sure if it would be well received. Each image I create tells a story about who I am. I'm sharing my dreams and my fears with the world, which is a terrifying thing to do. Some may like my work and some may not, and that's okay. This image was inspired by that feeling. I'm sharing my soul with you and the more I share, the more I grow as a person and an artist. I'm not perfect, but no one is perfect. Our mistakes help us learn and grow, and I have only just begun to scratch the surface, as there is still so much more for me to learn about myself and my craft.

I really do appreciate everyone who has followed me on this creative journey so far. I can't even express in words how much everyone's support means to me. It keeps me going, even when my head is filled with doubt. It is my hope that, at the end of this project, I will be able to publish a coffee table book showcasing my creative journey this year. I don't know how I'm going to make it happen, but I will find a way....somehow. This is just a little dream of mine and I'm hoping that, by putting it out there into the universe, it will keep me motivated to make it come true. Thank you for taking the time to read my weekly inspirations...and sometimes, fears. I'm just a girl with a dream....a dream to share my soul with the world.
