LIVE LAUGH LOVE

Take giant steps. Get your art out there to the neighborhood. Share your JOY. Tonight I am sharing my work with a few friends. We are having a wine tasting/Art Show at the Tea Room here in town. I invited a few close friends. Most of them have not seen my art before. Or seen it on line only. My BFF is coming up. I am nervous. It took almost three hours last night to set up, but we had fun. Tomorrow is the B I G day. I invited all my family and a few close friends to a open house. We are serving cookies and punch, and for four hours I will be out of my element. Showing my art. Its funny how you get talked into something. And here I am trying to talk you into sharing your art with others too. We have a large Quilting group here in our little town. They all know me but didn't know I do art...They do now, and after tomorrow the will have seen it all...I am taking pictures for my Mom and family down south so maybe I will share some with my blog friends too. This is a big step for me, but I figured it was time. Wish me luck!!! Diane

Oh Diane,what a lovely idea.....your guests are in for a treat. You are such a talented artist. I'd wish you luck, but I don't think you will need any luck......you've got talent!

Best Wishes,

Congratulations and GOOD FOR YOU! You should be sharing your work! I have always learned something from putting my art out there and those somethings just add to the you that makes the art! It is always a good and growing thing to do!

A lot of my family and most of my friends are not my big art cheerleaders. My dad and brother only like realistic wildlife art and most of the rest of my family and friends don't know what they like but they don't seem that into my stuff. I think they think I am just a crafter like I make popsicle stick art (nothing against popsicle stick art!) So, I pretty much avoid it with them. My husband and my mom-in-law are my real support and cheer me every little bit of the way and brag to everyone they know. So, I take what I can and don't take things personally from others. The blog world has been my biggest support outside of my husband and mom-in-law. So, no matter what happens, although I'm sure it will all be wonderful and everyone will be amazed and enthralled with you and your talent, just know that your blog family and fans are with you all the way baby! You are very talented and I adore your work! And, I admire you for the leap you are taking. My husband always says, you're not brave unless you do something you're afraid to do. So cheers to your guts! And congratulations on all of the jaw dropping hand raising foot dancing praise I am sure you will get!
