Happy New Year

I’m normally not one for New Year’s Resolutions. They remind me of broken promises and gyms packed in January and empty in March. It’s never been my thing. I feel differently this year. 2018 has been a successful year for me. This year was my first time showing my work and the reception I’ve gotten has been incredible. I was hesitant to start showing my art because I didn’t want something that has been such a therapeutic outlet to become commercialized and stressful. I may have had a confidence issue too. I’m not classically trained. I had only been painting for 45 seconds. I didn’t know anyone in the art community. The entire process was new. 17 shows and a host of new WndrlndArt collectors later, I feel more comfortable in my own skin and in my artwork. I’m ready to make some upgrades and push myself. Not “New Year, New Me,” but “New Year, Better Me.”

 

Alyse’s resolutions for 2019:

 

-Use another medium for creation, ie watercolor or oil

-Take an art class

 

-Host an paint and sip
