Starting my own studio is the right thing to do, I know this in my heart. But sometimes sharing this with other people can create responses that are not always easy to deal with, like:
But……..……..do you think what you make is good enough to get people to come to your workshops?
What a strange question.
Yes, I do believe I have something to say.
Something that will mean something to someone.
No, I’m not an art-guru , but I have a heart worth loving, a soul worth knowing and a voice that has something to say.
My studio is open for people to come and share my path.
“Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile – initially scared me to death.”
Three months ago there was an add in the local newspaper, in the council notifications sector – which I usually don’t read.
But this time I was bored and read it all.
My heart jumped when I read there was a space for rent in the centre of town inside a hundred-and-fifty year old fort.
It’s located in the most beautiful part of Weesp and just perfect for me.
Two months later I had the key.
Two days later I moved in.
Two hours after that I felt like I had come home.
This is it.
It’s about time to get started.
It’s annoying me to death I’m having so much trouble starting this blog .
If I’m not afraid of a BIG white piece of paper, not afraid of a blank canvas and not afraid of an empty journalpage – then why am I so afraid of a new and empty blog? Or am I just telling myself I am, because I think I should be…….
But not any more. It’s time to jump right in.
Right now I’m looking at a painting I made a few weeks ago. Around the painting it says:
When you come to the edge of all things you know,
you must believe one of two things will happen:
there will be something solid for you to stand upon, or.….
you will be taught how to fly.
So let’s start acting to my beliefs!
After all: practice makes perfect.
