I created this painting in the countryside of Beijing. The sunflower was one of the magical plants for me when I was a little girl.
You will find your own perfect path on your artist’s journey! ❤️
Sunflowers always follow the sunlight that is its belief whenever and wherever, so persistent, so confident. SELF-CONFIDENCE is very important for an artist as well. Our social life makes some of us less or more might have a kind of worldly habit which is not express their thoughts truthfully, just to please others, and this habit is a big obstacle to self-confidence.
I think the foundation of self-confidence comes from HONESTY, honestly judging the merits and demerits of your own artwork and expressing your own thoughts without following the judgements of others. As long as you are honest with yourself, your artwork will be closer to your true nature. We artists are very sensitive people, so it is not difficult to perceive our INTUITION. TRUST and FOLLOW our own intuition believe it always takes us in the right direction.
Just like sunflowers follow their intuition to face the sunlight. I hope you are TRUE, TRUE, and MORE TRUE with yourself, with others, and with your art! You will find your own perfect path on your artist’s journey!
