Questions & Answers: Learning to Paint with Jessica GreenDec 04, 2020
By Jed Dorsey
In this session Jessica Green joins us from Indianapolis, IN.
What a joy Jessica is! She has such a great perspective on being an artist. So many nuggets of wisdom. Here are a few:
You don't have to be a full-time artist to be a successful artist. You can enjoy art and flourish even if you don't make your living from it. There are different types of artists!
There are ebbs and flows in life. Do what you can and enjoy your season. Be fully present in whatever season you are in.
If you feel stuck and can't paint just switch gears. Do something else creative (it could be cooking or something not normally thought of as "creative.") Be gentle with yourself.
Also don't get discouraged when a solution stops working in anything - try something different. Most solutions are temporary.
Time away from painting is not wasted. You need to fill yourself up with inspiration. You can't paint from an empty pitcher. Get outside. Have some fun!
Jessica has quite a bit of experience with Art Fairs so we had some great conversation about this topic.
A huge thanks to Jessica for taking time to be with us in the midst of her busy life!
