encouragement for a new artist of mature years


I received a wonderful encouraging email from Barbara who I met whilst stating to blog on WordPress

Vivien, I’m so happy that you have the time now to pursue your love of art. Good for you, many people never pursue their dreams, perhaps out of a fear of failing.——-

I truly believe that stretching ourselves in new directions, out of our comfort zones helps us to become more creative, you walk to the beat of a different drummer and are not afraid to follow your instincts. That adds honesty, it makes your work distant and original.
And even if we aren’t fully happy with some of the results, they are proof of true artistic spirit. You are an original whose work is as well, that can produces work that is not a copy of others, but all your own.
