‘Never Give Up’
Usually not at a loss for words I find myself unsure of how to start this blog, so guess will just start! First by saying it has been awhile since Ive blogged or been on FB live. I appreciate all of the loyal followers and collectors we have had feel like you are family and I’ve missed you! It has been an incredibly difficult year one that I would not wish on anyone. Due to the sensitive nature of the situation will spare details but those of you that know me know that I am a Mama bear at heart. Don’t mess with my family or any kids for that matter. I am pleased to say that chapter has closed although the book now has some torn pages. Please pray for our family as you feel lead for complete restoration and healing.
Second I have also been dealing with medical issues that made doing FB live difficult at times. FB business page for Angela Bruch Art is public so was not comfortable sharing when not feeling well. Considering myself badass and invincible it was difficult being on bed rest and unable to exercise and be active but I’ve learned when I don’t listen it can lead to more problems. Pleased to say Im feeling much better but still have difficult days - so now you know.
I was going along in Milan Art Institute with well laid plans for my portfolio and graduation. As often happens even the best laid plans can go awry. When life hands you lemons - make art!! So that is what I did sometimes wild sometimes funky but it felt great. This period is best described as pausing but not giving up!!! A large piece of paper and a black marker heard my deepest pain. Then the beauty of art is layering over that mess and ending up with some beautiful art. What I like to call art for the heart.
Feeling determined will not let evil people stop what I believe to be my God given destiny to reach and teach people through art. I resumed school, grateful to have a personal mentor who has helped me get refocused. Woohoo what a joyful day that will be when school is completely done!
Never give up! Change your heart if needed which in turn changes your house, your community and well you can see where this is going. May not seem it but we can change the world one art creation at a time never giving up. You can also change the atmosphere of your space by hanging beautiful art.
In my neighborhood there was plan for Open Studios to show our art and process. The show was cancelled due to COVID so decided to still have a show. It was the exact impetus needed to finish my portfolio and branding. Finish I did without a minute to spare! Proud to say I painted 25-30 gallery quality paintings in various sizes. Once they are all uploaded on our website www.angelabruchart.com they will be verified by school and I will receive the certificate. We are on track to have the website updated by the end of the year.
The show was about a week ago and I was blown away by the support. It is not easy sharing work with people you know but so necessary. Additionally we found an awesome photographer and print maker they are well done Giclee prints. Enclosed is the flyer and with one of my favorite portfolio paintings ‘Tenacity’ the dragon fly. We are doing a drawing for a print (it’s a surprise) so if you enter your email address on our website just click on www.angelabruchart.com for the Newsletter you will be entered to win. If you live out of town and would like to FaceTime to see my portfolio - please let me know via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Moving forward we will be putting out a Newsletter to communicate upcoming shows or series. Mike handles that side of the business so stay tuned. We also have a BIG announcement coming shortly!! Once again thank you for the continued support and feedback on all of the art it is so helpful. Remember just keep creating and never give up.
