I came across this video of artist patrick Skoff, he is great and It got me thinkin about I how never felt like a "real" artist, and definitely did not fit in the art world. I never wanted to show my work, afraid of being judged and critiqued...such a waste of time. As I get older I realize that most of us feel like outsiders where ever we go, why is that? I don't know, but to know that is sort of comforting. I do realize now, it is not just artists that feel like aliens, but if I could go back and talk to my seven year old self, I would say, shyness will get you nowhere. You have just as much a right to anything in this world as anyone else...also don't forget to dig up the Star Wars toys you buried in the backyard, before we move.

So, this is a photo of a portable doorway size mural I will be puting on amazon or ebay, now that I have a decent photo of it, which was difficult to take because of its length. The photo is actually four pics I had to piece together in photoshop. Here are some close ups from "the garden" also.

I had an idea for this blog and also for facebook, let me know what you think about it, I was thinking, since I am always looking for inspiration, you folks could send a photo of yourself, or of anything you want, and if I find it interesting, you just may see a painting of your photo pop up here. Plus, if you want to purchase the painting, I will make sure you have dibs! My face book page is "aprilarstudio" or "Misty April"
