How to Have No Fear with Art

I'm so frustrated!!! I made this lovely mosaic from some of my flickr favorites and other flickr images, and saved it to my desktop, however I didn't realize that doing so wouldn't link me to the correct artist. so I feel really bad that I can't give you the direct link to each artist.
Nevertheless, the show must go on!

I wanted to share today some encouragement to paint your canvas for the Bad Girls Project 52 canvas without fear! I found some of the following tips online:

A well-known acronym for fear is: FEAR = False evidence appearing real

SARK, author of Make Your Creative Dreams Real suggests you to try this acronym on instead:

Fill yourself up creatively

Accelerate movement – Do something, anything, to combat the inertia of staying still. SARK advocates “micro movements” that take anywhere from 5 seconds to 5 minutes to complete. Those micro movements are the building blocks for our creative dreams and most importantly, get us moving!!

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
- Joseph Chilton Pearce

Now go create, and I'll see you at Bad Girls. :)

I love the fairy painting by Sascalia in your mosaic. They are beautiful. I can see why you favorited all of these, very inspiring.
