I think I’ll never say too much how my BIG experience is affecting who I am. I am no longer affraid to say that yes, is some way or another, I am an artist.
And I realize that you don’t have to sell artwork that worth billions of money to BE an artist. Even people who don’t paint, or draw, or sculpt, are artists.
A few weeks ago, Connie shared a moving text where she declared her artist self. And each of us did the same afterwards. I read so many beautiful statements that tears fell off of my eyes many times.
I wanted more than words, something I can look at when the Gremlins attack and cast doubt about it.
I took a big poster board and just started to create. I had no idea what it’ll be. I just knew I had to do it. So it’s not pretty. It’s not the most beautiful artwork I’ve created. But I like it. Because I am not perfect.
And you know what ? I recorded it, i always keep somewhere in my head what Kerri told me once: “always record, you can always erase if you don’t like it” 😉 Very good advice, isn’t it !
My Artist Statement.
I am an artist because I say so
I am an artist because I create my life everyday
I am an artist because I feel I am my self whith paint on my hands
I am an artist because I collect art supply instead of shoes
I am an artist because I am BIG & FEARLESS
I am an artist because when I see skies, I imagine them on canvas
I am an artist because I’m proud to keep (tons of) diaries
I am an artist because it flows in my veins
I am an artist because I fill my walls with MY canvases
Of course, this list can go on and on.
I’m sorry, I had some issues while editing the video, it’s not the best quality but I really wanted to share it with you 🙂 Here it is:
PS: there is still room for you in the next tribe of BIG, so have a look, if you want to experience something you’d never imagine so juicy and so life-changing. No need to be an experienced painter to join. Read more about it here.
