11: How I Build a Painting

In this episode I share all about my process of creating a painting from start to finish.  I’m excited to talk about this because I know every painter works very differently.  We each have developed a process that fulfills our unique needs and personalities as painters, and most of the time we break a whole bunch of “art school” rules along the way!  I hope this will be a fun look for you into how I create. ___ Follow Julie on Instagram: @juliemarriottart Music courtesy of www.bensound.com

15: Art + Fear

Let’s start an honest conversation art-making and fear.  In this episode, I share the top three fears I’m personally dealing with at this point in my art practice.  They’re a different set of fears than the ones I had when just beginning my art business 4 years ago - which just goes to show that no matter how far along the road we are, we all deal with them.  I hope that being real with you and sharing these art fears of mine will help you to see that we’re all in this journey together! ___ Follow Julie and Make Share Grow on Instagram: @juliemarriottart Music courtesy of www.bensound.com
