Wishcasting Wednesday


This week's wish prompt:  What do you wish to let go of?
It wasn't 10 minutes earlier while I was soaking in some wonderful artwork on the blogs, that I said to myself "I need to let go of the feeling that my work is not good enough." I need to let go of the idea that my art needs to be anything other than what it is. Sometimes it is a bit treacherous out in the art world because there is competition and comparison and those 2 things don't make for happy art. I want to let go of all of that and paint and create freely. Thanks, Jamie, for another wonderful wish prompt.

  1. Oh no, we've ALL got to stop that comparison nonsense!

    As Shari wishes for herself, so do I also wish for her with all my heart!

  2. Go girl. Just create for yourself. Sometimes you'll be happy, sometimes you won't but at least learn from your mistakes. I allowed a disaster at the art table to get me down last night - when I was painting to try and cheer myself up! Woke up this morning though with a desire to try again!

  10. Geeez, tell me Spirit isn't afoot in your life, lol!

    Please let it go...it's an allusion and not real.

    But, trust me, I get it.

  25. I know I may be a bit biased (being one of the lucky ones to have some of your art as my very own!), but you can ask Brian - I spent the whole weekend walking around the festival talking about you and also saying "Shari's stuff blows this out of the water." And of course he agreed.
