Well, I thought I gave up blogging a long time ago when I used to post ridiculous photos of my pregnant belly thinking anyone but my own mother wanted to see that. But here I am again! I am not the greatest blogger, I must admit. I get on a roll, and then I hibernate for a bit. I guess we'll see where this goes, but for now it's nice to have an outlet to share random thoughts and bits and pieces of my artistic side, with a dash of real life sprinkled in here and there when the mood strikes. So, welcome to Boone & June!
As a stay at home mom for the past six years, I felt like it was time to start spending more time focusing on what makes ME happy... well, outside of fetching snacks all day, wiping noses and kissing boo boos. I love spending my days chasing after my kids, but in order to do that well with a smile on my face, I discovered that I need to also spend some time fostering my creativity. Painting and drawing for me is theraputic. I get lost in my own mind and before I know it, I'm finished! I have learned to push past the self doubt that always comes with the creative process, and trust in my own ability. It wasn't until I developed this self confidence that I knew I was ready to sell my work. I am still learning daily about what works and doesn't work, and the process of creating is fluid and organic. It takes me on a journey, and that is the best part about being an artist. Every day I am trying to push myself towards being better and I look forward to where my journey takes me next!
