Doodling through the winter

Here we have some lovely doodles I did recently, plus a Winter Holiday drawing I forgot to post - Forest Rain. It doesn't rain much in Colorado, though this time of year it's more likely to be snowing. But it does rain, and I do remember the rain, especially the summer rain... a gentle rain, a little blessing from the sky. I love to draw, I love to create, and I am grateful that it comes so easily and just flows from my finger tips... and that women employ me to do this art. Now this drawing I did for myself when I was having my Winter Holiday art break, just drawing for me, thinking about trees and weather, and how to express that artistically. One shape and then another, moving, moving, don't stop, let it flow. What else can I say, I am an artist. I make art, it's what I do.

  I have taken it upon myself to self-educate, to naturally grow my artistic education. My art classes in school were not very satisfying, and I discovered that I learn best going at my own pace, learning through reading books, listening to podcasts, watching videos, etc. The kind of artwork I do is really unique, I am not a festival henna artist who paints the same exact design a hundred times. I end up sitting with each woman I adorn for 1 to 3 hours during her session, so I have time to create something brand new each time. This kind of art calls for a huge background of design ideas, all my files. Furthering my artistic education has meant that I've made time to really dive in where I feel called. All my life I have been struck with fun, creative ideas and I have the persistence & know-how to manifest most of them. 
 Roughly 15 years ago, I came a cross the idea of reading biographies & autobiographies of people who pursue a similar career to mine, and it has set me on a path to find all those books and read them. Specifically I was looking for women with artistic careers. There aren't many books about them! But recently, I found out about Debbie Millman.  I recognized her from an awesome skillshare.com course I'd taken last year and as I began listening to her podcast I realized that absolutely LOVED the sound of her voice. She interviews all kinds of artists, authors, designers, etc - both men and women. It is absolutely fascinating to hear about all the different trajectories an Art Career can take.
   I try to get the books recommended and read those too, and I recently came across an amazing gem of a book called "In the Company of Women." This is fascinating! It is a thick book with full color photos of 100 women in creative businesses. I love it! I am so inspired!
