Exciting New Art Web Series

Exciting New Art Web Series

So I started a thing! I’m really excited about it too! It’s a new web series on YouTube called “What The Heck Is Misty Making?!”

Temporary title card. I’ll probably come up with something else later.

I’m 95% sure I have undiagnosed ADHD or ADD. I get hyperfocused on projects all the time. One week I could be creating stickers and the next painting a pair of rollerskates (which, by the way, I’ll be doing soon)! It’s not a bad thing. I learn so much and have fun doing it! I’m pretty good at multi-tasking too! Not to mention, I create lots of cool things! Like just the other week, I painted watercolor roses and turned them into bookmarks! I put a couple in my shop!

Here I am holding up one of the watercolor rose bookmarks I made

For my first episode, I painted watercolor watermelons. I’ve actually been sick this past week, but I wanted to start this series. So, if I seem less peppy than usual in the video, that’s why. And I created the video to be in line with National Watermelon Day, but am posting a couple days late, since I’ve been under the weather. I’m actually going to the doctor today. Hopefully, I’ll be feeling better soon!

This is a stock image of the rollerskates I’ll be painting! I got pink wings and rainbow shoelaces for the skates too! They’re going to be epic!

In the video, I say “What The Heck Is Misty Doing” but have decided to replace “doing” with “making”. Just wanted to clear that up, so there’s no confusion.

An Artist Working On A Dream

An Artist Working On A Dream

Do you ever just feel like you’re spinning your tires? I don’t know if it’s ADHD or passion, maybe a little bit of both, but I hyperfocus, work, and push so hard to succeed. It can get exhausting and be a bit defeating when all that work seems to be for naught. It can be so disheartening to put all your love and energy into your dreams and goals and nothing ever seems to change or you see little returns.

You internalize and wonder what you could do differently. Am I too much or not enough? It’s not easy being a person who overthinks and feels deeply. Add social media and content creation and you wonder if you’re reaching and touching the people who need to see you and your artwork the most.

Am I just embarrassing myself, giving too much, or too little? Being an artist working to accomplish something with your art is difficult as it is, without the added pressures of social media. I could put on a happy face every day, but the reality is I’ve been doing this for so long, some days I feel like giving up and I want to be authentic.

It’s been a rough couple of years for me with my health and the state of the world. Am I making a difference? Does my art matter? I believe so, even if I can’t see the results/effects. At least, I hope so. I know my art helps me. It helps me cope and it helps me express myself.

I’ll keep working towards my dream of being a licensed artist. But today is hard. Not all days are easy or good, but that’s alright. That’s the nature of it, I suppose, and I’m still learning and growing. I’m doing my best and I’ll just have to be patient with myself. And if you ever feel this way, as an artist, just know you aren’t alone. Many artists feel this way, from time to time.
