‘Stress Puppy’ by Kirsten Harris
I chose to paint seascapes for my upcoming exhibition partly because I have sold every seascape I have ever made and I hope to increase my chance of success!
The reason I desire to sell well is to fund my next project, which is likely to take many months to complete and be a ‘gift to the universe life mission’ project.
The project is to finish illustrating an Alexander Technique book for children and teenagers that literally downloaded into my head about three years ago.
Strange but true!
It is a monster, fun, quirky, piece of writing.
The high school kids I teach love it. (I don’t think they are just being polite and kind!)
I have tried it out on them, and they are determined for me to ‘get it out there’ as they are sure it will help other kids get through school and life as the Alexander Technique has helped them.
My next art job is to hone my inner cartoonist!
All about letting the line flow simply to tell a story ….
I am writing about my motivation behind my up coming exhibition to boost my confidence and strength of intention to sell and so the ‘angels of abundance’ know what the plan is!!
And because, to be honest, I am feeling a bit like this cartoon at the moment. A Stress Puppy Artist!
A bit of fear creeping in at the last minute. Not helpful, but human!
Time to transform fear to excitement. To be confident having put my heart and soul into painting all winter.
I keep waking up in the morning thinking maybe the big paintings are all too grey and blue, and then the next thought is that grey and blue are bang on trend for interior design and I loved painting them so TRUST! TRUST! TRUST!
Time to let it go and focus on THE BOOK manifesting after the exhibition ….
