Asking the Big Questions. Who am I? What the heck am I doing?

Lately, I've been asking myself a lot of questions.  What do I want from life?  Who am I?  What am I doing?  Quilter was one of those definitions.  Then I started painting more and more.

In the midst of all this, I signed up for some classes, worked new techniques, and became even more befuddled than I started.  Whimsical.  Abstract.  Watercolor.  Napkins.  Acrylic.

So while I continue to "find myself", I'm completely lost.

Tell me, how do you define yourself and your work?  Is it even possible?  Do you have any tips or even deeper questions to ask?

She makes me feel a little sad. Still loving how she came out. #JaneDavenport #artjournal #latenightart

Playing catch up again. Abstract painting.  It made need a little more attention after it dries and I can see it. #paint #latenightart

  1. You are a wonderful person. Dynamic, creative, a great friend to the ones who know you. It seems you are growing really fast lately in your creative en devours; and you would be a strange person if you were not going to so much re structuring of your sense of self. In due time you will take a big breath and realize you are just the best you. Just with more. Sending you a big hug.

  2. These questions, and this search, are signs (to me any way!) of a self-aware person. I ask the same of myself all the time. As I have gotten older, the answers have become slightly easier to find. And as I have aged, I like myself better too. I hope you never stop searching, asking and seeking, to settle would be really sad. I like to think I haven't peaked yet!
