You see I kind of have this love hate thing with social media.  I'm kind of the last one to the party.  I am however glad that so many others have embraced it as it has given me hours of inspirational looking and video watching and well...general internet surfing which leads to the next site and the next and you get my drift!
This being said I am trying to put myself "out there" more than ever before.  Mingle-Mingle! Which has brought me to pretty big realization about my relationship with art.  Boy, does it make you vulnerable!
Let me explain, (if you aren't snoozing already!), that when you put yourself into your art and then allow others to see it, you've made yourself vulnerable. For me this has been a good thing.
Left to my own defenses I could easily become a hermit in the hills somewhere (as long as I have my supplies...and an occassional movie and dinner out, haha!) and never miss a thing.  Art is really busy pulling me out of myself so to speak.  Good, bad, or otherwise I guess.  So vulnerability and all I have been creating whenever I can. 
Last fall I started doing bigger canvases and now seem only to gravitate towards doing them!  This is one recently done, an 18 x 20.  Enjoy and get vulnerable!!
