Hi & Welcome!

Hi! Welcome to my brand new blog!

I'm excited to begin this little space here!

There are a few reasons I've begun this blog ...

... the first being that I'm wanting to believe and embrace this part of who I am more fully. By that I mean letting go of the fear and doubt that has held me back creatively for far too long. Sound familiar? To be less concerned with perfection and more willing to play and learn from mistakes.

... the second being that I need to develop my skills and talents more. I believe we never arrive at a place of knowing everything about skills, techniques and ourselves.

... another is to develop creative habits that are productive and achieve positive results (not perfect ones!) I've been reading a fantastic book that has given me a good kick in the pants and inspired me ... but ... that will be another post!

... also I don't really have an avenue at the moment for my art, so I thought this would be a great place to start!

...and lastly, I thought that maybe with you reading about my journey, that maybe you will be inspired to pick up where you left off, keep pressing on to embrace, create and enjoy your creativity too!

Thanks so much for staying a while! I plan on ... well, not really planning when I post, I am wanting to take it as it comes. You're most welcome to follow along and share your creative selves with me too!

In the meantime ... I have an art journal calling my name!


  1. Great start Elisha. I love the painting. Look forward to seeing more.

    1. Hi Suzanne! Thank you for visiting and for your kind comments! Hope you have a great week.

  2. Hello. I too am an amature artist who embarked on your journey a couple of years ago. If you will google art blogs you will find a number to read and follow and by doing this reach more similar minded people. You might also research Pinterest and Deviant Art, although al lor of the art on the Deviant site may not be "in your alley" there are still a lot of very good artist posting their work there.
    I hope you will visit my site and that you find any tips I have given you helpful.

    1. Hi Fran. Thank you so much for visiting and commenting here on my new blog. Your advice was encouraging and I will look into what you suggested. It's good to share our creative ideas with others so as to inspire each other and keep our creativity in use.
      Thanks again Fran, have a great week. See you next time!


Thank you for your comments, they make me very happy!
