Denny The Artist | Art

This morning I sat in the sunlight with a paint brush in hand thinking what should I make today? I've been illustrating different styles of patterns with different mediums trying to find what I like to call my "jam", niche, etc.... really just trying to find ME as an artist.  It's hard to be surrounded by so many people who have found their calling, yet it's still an inspiration for me to find mine. Silly of me it's been there all along. I just couldn't see it. It came so naturally to me I didn't think anything of it other than something I enjoyed. And that's illustrating my personal style. I immediately grabbed my Madewell accessories and started doodling away. I sat there smiling like a fool thinking about how easy that was, how content I felt with these tiny watercolored things, and how in my own way that was how I could keep something forever. I looked back on my past illustrations and almost wanted to yell at myself for all the times I couldn't figure it out. "It" meaning what I was good at illustrating. like I said it was there all along. A way I could combine all the things I loved onto one piece of paper.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going to take this new found epiphany of mine, but I've got some ideas that are worth giving a try. One step at a time right? I also wanted to say thank you to all of you who I've confided in, cried to, and even just admired for what you do and put into this world. My heart swells up even when I just get a comment on Instagram of a heart eyed emoji (yes I'm that emotional when it comes to my art) That one emoji lifted my spirits and helped me to keep going. I thought if even one person admired what I doodle, then it's worth it.  So thank you.

P.S. I never felt confident enough to call myself that even though I've been making "art" since I was a child. Time for a change, Happy April!
