Kelly Rae Roberts's class has caught me off guard! There could be a whole other life waiting for me out there! The overwhelming emotion of that possibility is washing over me in a big way today.

10 things (just to name a few) I have learned so far:

  1. The whisper is really your life's inspiration calling you. Push through the fear and follow your true inspiration.

  2. Inspiration + Passion + Commitment = Wildest Dreams Come True

  3. Be ready to commit and work hard - be mentally tough like an athlete

  4. Set goals that are bigger than I think I can achieve

  5. Say "I am an artist" out loud when someone asks what I do

  6. Create an online presence (blog) that paints a picture of who I am

  7. Reach out to others and participate in their blog posts/challenges

  8. Just be myself

  9. Create what is meaningful to me, not what I think will sell

  10. Search and observe treasures in the ordinary sights of my everyday life
"As I let my own light shine, I unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." - Marianne Williamson


  1. I love this list Barbara! You are pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone and discovering new pieces of who you are. YOU ARE AN ARTIST! Celebrate yourself! I too am learning to own this part of myself and celebrate it. I am happy to connect with you and follow along on each others' journeys.

  2. Barbara love your list and your studio is beautiful!! I will be in Wimberley in a few weeks so will be sure to pop into your sisters shop

  3. Barbara,
    I am in Kellys class and 'flew' here to see your blog!!
    Congratulations! YES YOU ARE AN ARTIST!!
    Follow your heart, your muse, your love, your desires, and they will come true. There is a plethora of courses online to learn to do what your wish is.
    One yr ago, I did not have a blog,
    did not know how to paint faces or even cartoons.. I know of some great courses you will absolutely love on ART.
    Visiting me you can go back in my archives and see where I started.. and where I am at now even though I have a long road ahead.
    I started with
    drawing whimsy art. I will put one up for Saturdays posts and you can see the THEN and NOW.. so girlfriend.. do not be dismayed.
    Take those wings of yours, and Open them and FLY!
    Hugs, Darlene xo
