Tracy Weinzapfel Is My Guest Today

What Art Means to Me
When Dawn asked me to be a guest blogger on her site I wondered what gems of information or tidbits of interest I could write about.  Today I was thinking about What Art Means to Me.  I am sure it takes on a different meaning for everyone and I am happy to share my thoughts....
Art is a way for me to express myself.  Like an musician puts words to a tune, I put colors and images to a canvas.  Art is an escape for me.  When life has its ups and downs the first place I go to is my art journal to put my mood and emotions to paper.  I used to think that the only and best time to create was when everything was OK in my world (which we know is rare as challenges do arise) but now I realize that it is in the toughest times that the emotions are at their rawest.  I find that flow or "zone" of creating so much easier when those challenges do arise.
Also, art has opened a world to me that I never knew I could engage in.  Friends are surprised to hear that in school I was shy and quiet.  Public speaking scared the heck out of me (oh the torment those speeches were).  Now I can stand in front of a class of 100 (sweating my rear off with nerves) but the Art I so dearly Love I can easily talk and share with others.  Also, I am LIVE every Monday on Ustream sharing the creative process LIVE in my art journal and that shy quiet Tracy is gone. Art opened up this amazing world of color and inspiration. 
Here are just some of my latest projects:
"Truth" - 14 X 11
"Live Live" - 11 X 14 Created LIVE on UStream HERE:

"Inspire" - 12 X 16

"Dream" - 16 X 20 Created Last Monday Night LIVE!

If you are not joining us Monday nights LIVE on Ustream than you are missing all the fun!! Most of these creations were created LIVE and the recordings can be seen HERE on my tw Studios Ustream Channel. We are LIVE every Monday night so please join us Monday nights truly are fun and the inspiring friendships that are growing from there are so great! Stay tuned for weekly challenges and a new kit I am working on which I am so excited about! For more information including event reminders "Like" Tracy Weinzapel Studios on Facebook
