A sketch a day, Week 8

Still sketching, little progress, and sometimes I feel like making one step forth and two back again. It is the daily practice that makes a difference over the long time. I'm now so used to just take my pencil into my hand and do it. This habit has melted into my day.

Daily life

Sketching little donkies that then my daugther colors in. // Fresh fruit and plants make me feel abundant.

My little girl with her best friend, little Ada the chihuahua. // First layers for my paintings I'm working on at the moment.

My studio after I cleaned up all the mess. // My big sweet and best friend, Molly the newfoundland dog. She is always by my side.

My studio in a clean state, lots of space to create. // Computer processing my sketches.

Painting more backgrounds, this is my happy place. Creating. // Joyful color combinations.

We all are artists!

Since my newest adventures brings me straight back to art and being an artist (I avoided everything in this direction, since I just suffered so much in art school and felt my creativity being suffocated) I thought a lot about what it needs to be an artist. With a pair of fresh eyes, a bunch of confidence and knowing how I am, I have now a whole new point of view.

Does it really matter if one is talented?
I don't think that it is the most important part of being an artist. I think firsthand it needs dedication to do it daily, to express your feelings and emotions from deep inside you, being vulnerable and ready to show who you are.
This needs confidence and courage. Every day. And there is one very effective thing that helps us get into this place, get in any place we ever desire.

It is practice.

We learn by doing, we move forward by creating and expressing.
There are so many reasons to hold back and hesitate. There are so many fears, pressure and expectations we put on us. We are afraid of being judged, by them around us or by our own self.

I truly believe, that everyone of us is creative. We are all creators and we are the ones to shape or life into the form we desire.

We long to express our self, in so many different ways, because we need to define who we are. We all want to know, what makes us the very person we are. So we seek to express our self, far not only with things we learned to call art, like painting or drawing.
There are so many aspects of expression and just being shapes us into who we are and become.

We have the freedom to decide and become the person we want to be. It needs a little bit of dedication and braveness to follow up with what we imagine our highest own self to be. How we imagine our self to be and then start take action in this very direction, we will become.

We all seek for attention. We want to be seen. We want to be heard. We want to have a confirmation in what we do.
Because we are searching who we are and this attention is like a sign on the road, the outside view to show us if we are on the right track and go in the direction we imagine for us to be the best.

A sketch a day, Week 7

Most of my time there is someone around or next to me when I'm in my studio, one of my daugthers wants to paint, sketch or color in. At least one dog is lying next to my feet, often all three follow me along, wherever I go.

I love to never be alone and always have some creative and calm energy near and around me.
Dogs seem to be in a constant state of meditation. They just are and live in the moment and this mood is so healing and roots me, when I get caught up from the hurry and mess life can be.

Creating causes always a messy studio. // I love to gift myself flowers for no special reason.

Fresh papaya and flowers. // One of the daily sketches.

Spring feels so good. I love to let the clean air float our home! // Processing my sketch and choosing color palettes.

Writing some copy for my newest project, our online shop. // A clean studio and home invites new ideas.

Creating wood animals for our soon to come online shop! Can't wait to share it with all of you! // Inspired by the tiny flowers my daugther picked for me.

Tutorial for clay flowers

I made some hairclips, rings and ear studs with roses I made out of lightweight clay. Just look the video if you want to see how I made them and then do some for yourself too. I love the rawness and open ends, so I didn't worked the edges with sandpaper.

A sketch a day, Week 5

Practice is what moves forward, I feel to make two steps ahead and one back. This is week 5 of my daily sketches and it feels so good to be consistent, especially since I'm seeking my place in some other areas. Working steadly in the direction my dreams are made of.
