Now departing at gate 15...

Acrylic on canvas

This is my departure.. from the usual...from art journaling..finding my palette..finding my voice. It's here.

Tired of being labeled....I am Julie.

My growth period is here....finally. I recognize it.

When you can apply every technique and medium you have studied for the past few years and comfortably, confidently apply it to a painting that makes your heart stop for a minute..that is how you know...

I'm happy at this place.
