Do you ever get those little “nudgings” a passing thought, something that you feel like you should do even if it doesn’t make complete sense? I may not always be perfect at seeking time with the Lord but he is still forever faithful. During some quiet time felt like we were supposed to hire some professional help for marketing Angela Bruch Art. I was further discussing with a trusted friend about where a person like this could be found she said “ask your Pastor.” That sounded like a great idea so emailed the Associate Pastor (we go to a fairly large church) and he very quickly emailed me back the name of Julie Ross and her contact info.
Julie very promptly responded back via email with an explanation of her services of helping small business owners find their voice and what makes them unique. She was not pushy but forthright which was refreshing. We set a date for her to come to my home studio with her son who is a photographer.
We had recently moved to Chapel Hill from another state so I went to being in 2 galleries to now none which was okay but left me with lots of art work. So our home is decorated with art all different sizes of paintings from other artists, me, my husband and our grandchildren. Julie was taken aback with all of the art and started asking me questions in that loving way she has of gathering information.
In addition to painting there are art journals and the supplies used to create in the studio. An art journal stays open near my easel where leftover paint becomes the beginning of a page. Julie was drawn to the journals and said she is not a painter but she wanted to know how to do this! I told her I had been teaching art journaling for about 2 years but had not started since moving here. To which she replied it was time!! Little did I know what greatness this would lead to.
I wanted to wait until Spring “someday” will restart classes. How many somedays are you wasting away? The little nudges or ideas from God which often come through others and can lead to greatness. Yet when I someday it away the blessing from that obedience never gets a chance to come. Just think if I would of waited! Due to COVID 19 we went into isolation!!! At this point we are not sure when we will be able to have traditional classes again. The skills learned from the retreat helped during these times of social distancing. What are you glad did not wait to do? What do you miss the most during these crazy times?
