March Creative Dare with Tracy Weinzapfel - I am

Today, I am sharing my Creative Dare for March. Each month, Tracy challenges her Mixed Media Monday group to a creative dare. It is just a way to keep us all creating and thinking outside our comfort zone. I have been way stressed out lately and creativity has not really been flowing, but I sat down and finally got to my March Challenge. It was really good to get messy and just be ME. (Even if I had to dust off a few things in the studio to do it.)


I am ..... ME
(Love, Honesty, Faith, Friendship, Happiness, and yes CHAOS)

Mixed Media Monday's with Tracy Weinzapfel

What do I do on Monday nights?


Monday's are my favorite day of the week,
and it is all because of what I do on Monday nights. 



I spend my Monday nights with a bunch of close friends. We watch Tracy Weinzapfel as she paints LIVE on Ustream, learn about new techniques and products, and chat about art and life.  Over the years, this group has grown from just a few to over 750. As we have shared our art and lives with each other, we have become a small community who cares deeply for each others.



Each week, Tracy inspires us to live outside our comfort zone and create every day. She does this with an absolutely genuine heart and a sense of humor that is infectious. She has taught us that everyone makes mistakes, that mistakes are just opportunities to grow and learn, and that everyone can be an artist. Never be afraid to try!!





Personally, Tracy has helped me be ME and not hide that person deep inside. She challenges me both artistically and personally. She has helped me through artistic slumps and life's little bumps in the road. Her motto is, "What you see is what you get". That is 100% true. Tracy couldn't be fake if she tried. It is just not in her nature.




If you are looking for a place where you can share your art, learn about techniques, and truly just have an ENORMOUS amount of fun, then please join us on Monday Night's. It is an unscripted, hilarious, educational, and fun time to hang out with friends.
