Have you ever dreamed of a painting or creation in your sleep? That’s what happened to me the other night. I actually dreamed of quite a few paintings, but these two were the most vivid when I woke up. That’s really the first time I have taken my dream inspiration and turned it into reality. I hope it happens again because I am very happy with the style of these and the colors! Plus, I love cowboy boots. I own several pairs myself and wear them all the time.
So, I’ve been thinking/talking a lot about finding “my style” and ran across this excellent article about developing your artistic style. I was feeling a little down on myself that I don’t seem to have one and that my art is all over the board, but this article affirmed that I am not the only person who has experienced that.
Developing your style takes time, and it’s ok to let the creative process happen in order to find it. In a way, it gave me permission to just create for creativity sake. I realize I have a lot more work to do, but now I can look at it as a process, rather than something that just happens overnight or something you are gifted with.
Here are a couple more shots of these last two minis. Yeehaw!
