Art at the Speed of Life, The Book

The past two years have been an amazing transition from SAHM who loves art to Art as my career. For the 20+ years prior, art was my hobby, always there, always cherished, but not my ‘day job’. This has changed over the last couple of years as I started to take some baby steps out into the the world of publication.

The start was a simple list of goals and dreams in my Art Journal. These were my ‘secret’ dreams and I did not know if they were possible, but I did know that if I didn’t at least try they would always just be a dream.
So I sent a piece in to a magazine.
It was sent back a couple of months later.
I sent in another piece.
It was sent back a couple of months later.
This is where I could have given up.
But something inside of me was determined and I sent in three pieces.
These were published!
This was the start of an exciting ride of publications, teaching opportunities and now the realization of my heart of arts deepest desire,
the publication of my book,

Art at the Speed of Life

I’ve been working and reworking this book idea since last December. I’ve learned so much in the process. Looking back I realize that the timing was not right until now. Like everything else, there is much growth in the journey. It is the journey, not the accomplishments, that make us who we are.

I would like to invite all of you, my family, friends, and fellow bloggers to share the journey of ‘Art at the Speed of Life’ on my new blog. I will share the ups and downs of the road the book will travel.
I will share in the hopes that it will help and encourage some of you on your own journey and to help me learn and grow as much as possible along the way.
I hope to see you over there to follow along with the books progress,
xoxo
