On my way up to Charlotte, NC, to a business conference with Christine Kane, I stopped by one of my very favorite cities in the south, Beaufort, South Carolina. This sketch was done about 8 in the evening on Saturday and it was still in the mid 90's!

Ugh. The humidity was unreal.

The marsh grasses completely captivate me when I'm in this area and I could spend, well, let's just say a really, really long time, learning to capture the nuance of colors in the shifting sawgrass. Since I don't get to stop here as often as I'd like, it was worth it to brave the heat.

Especially since I knew I could pass out in the AC after I finished the sketch!

Just as we practice to improve our skills to learn to "see," to paint and draw, I've found that I have to practice and improve my skills to continue growing my creative life. I am very excited to be working with Christine Kane as a mentor/coach.

Sharing my passion for art, for sketching, for painting, for gaining confidence in our skills is so very important to me so I took a huge step earlier this year and hired Christine to help me reach a new level in my business!

I'll being stretched, challenged and nudged to new mindsets and perspectives. I'm stepping waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out my comfort zone and I'm learning to do things imperfectly...........this should sound familiar to some you who have taken my classes.

I'm getting in a little bit of sketch time and I'll share it when I get the chance to take some photos.

What are you doing to get out of your comfort zone?!
