Reclaim Yourself

I have a secret wish -but I'm going to share it with you even though it scares me just to type it out to the universe.
My plan:
To make about 20 of these girl portraits to encourage women to be strong in their lives and to value themselves.
Then, I want to have a little show at a darling little gift shop here that does that sometimes for new artist.
If I sell them, I will add it to a long-time dream to TRAVEL to Italy in October of 2011 and take my mom and daughter or at least help them go.
If I don't, I will pay for a booth at our art gallery in hopes of selling them.
If they don't sell there, I will give them away for a silent auction for our food pantry in our little community, of which I'm on the Board.
I will make prints and maybe calenders for friends and family.
I cannot fail with this plan. I cannot fail with this plan....
I keep telling myself I must value my art enough to promote it and sell it.
Now that you share my secret wish maybe somehow it will make it grow.
What is your secret wish?
(This is a mixed-media piece with acrylic and watercolor pencils and charcoal. What you're looking at is actually a 8 X 10 print, rather than the original.)

That is the TRUTH,
my sweet friend.
You cannot fail with this plan.

This beauty is inside you.
You are simply sharing it.

There is no fail.
Just sharing beauty.

And that is why we were created.
To share beauty.
So, you are simply following Someone's will for your life.

You will succeed.

And we'll cheer you on...
Hugs & Prayers,

You cannot fail Peggy, because the only failure is not to try.

You will be surprised by your own success I think.

Can't wait to ride along as you take these awesome steps.

You've already succeeded so there is no chance of failure here. You've opened yourself up to more and more success. And I think it's a GREAT plan. Go for it.
