Trust the Mess
There are many truths I hold close to me, but this recent mantra is one that speaks the loudest. One that has grown bigger over the years and remained steady in all forms of uncertainty. These past few months (where I have clearly abandoned blogging) have been, in one word, messy. Physically, emotionally, financially, and creatively. I tend to deal with things privately, I retreat to quieter places and limit my access to people or internet or other elements that might make sorting out the mess more difficult. But in all, in the last few months, I've been quite brave. I've felt braver and more authentic than ever. And I think that for all the difficult and messy pieces there has been equal amounts of magic, friendship and love.
During this time I have tried to really think about my creative vision and the direction I want my creative life to go. I am truly thankful for the support and growth of Such Sweet Tierney over the last 4 (yes 4!!) years. I want to focus more on sharing inspiration with you, and using this blog to form a community between myself and other creators of the world. I hope to document more of my painting process as I learn and grow into my own artistic style. To trust the imperfections and the perpetual learning process and the inevitable messes.
I'll share some of my goals (26 before i turn 27 list) later this week.
