As some of you may know, I am a big believer in the power of an affirmation and have an affirmation journal that I write in when I can and have started posting my favorites on my fridge and next to my bed so I see them often.
For some reason, about a month ago, I was drawn to an book on my shelf that a friend gave me about 5 years ago called, Holy Moly Maceroli, about a woman and her card making buisness. One of my favorite books.
I opened it up to a page with an affirmation from the artist Janet Ghio. She posted this affirmation that she had written while doing The Artists Way, a great book which helped me creatively very much in my life.
I loved her words and wanted to post it here. I have really never thought of myself as making a living as an artist. Sounds weird but I never has really said the words, "I make my living as an artist. " I have been using her words lately and a funny thing has happened. I have been selling more work little by little and have been given more opportunities for my work that I never have thought of before.
I would love you guys to have this and post it on your blogs if you like, I think these words are very powerful. For me, the one thing I want in my life is to make a living as an artist so I will be thinking that way from now on!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! I have my booth at the Art Faire in San Juan Capistrano tomorrow and will be taking the rest of the weekend off, so I will see you Tuesday!
