21 Secrets Conversations Both Exciting and Scary!

My first video interview with Connie from Dirty Footprints Studio!

Everyone is on their own unique and powerful journey.  I feel so lucky to be able to learn about the journey of so many artists thanks to Connie Hozvicka putting together 7 weeks of free interviews.  That is the exciting part.

Now for the scary part…Connie interviewed me.  This was my first video interview…and with a new camera.  So that means I have no idea if it all worked smoothly or if the camera angle turned out well or if I even sound coherent since I was so nervous.  I have no clear memory of what I said when this was recorded a couple of months ago but what I do remember is how wonderful and warm Connie was, how comfortable she made me feel.  Thank you Connie for helping me do something new!

Head on over to Dirty Footprints Studio to check out the video!

    Hi Carolyn, I just watched your inspiring conversation with Connie!! Really great stuff! I am a former NYC public school art teacher (middle school) & so much of you you spoke about resonated with me! You have such a wonderful, generous spirit that shone right through the screen today & shines right through your art! Thank you for the inspiration!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for this! There were some words I so needed to hear today. I like how your thinkingmachine works!

    Carolyn, you gave a wonderful, heart-felt interview with Connie! I could deeply relate to everything you were saying, especially the theme of letting go of our fears (of failure, of rejection, of ridicule, of “whatever”…) and just enjoying the process of making art without worrying so much about the end product. Thanks again for all you do and for being a consistent source of inspiration and encouragement!

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I loved what you said about not letting the inner critic win because if you keep going, you will end up with something you like even better (where you clean your brushes can be the prettiest creation… so true!). “Ditch the fear in art, ditch the fear in me”- love it!

    Thank you so much for sharing this video. For me it is also all about the layers on a surface which those in my support (?) group don’t understand. They are always looking for the scene and/or the meaning and don’t understand that this art is just for the inner “me” to emerge. It is nice to confirm that I am the only one that has to be happy with my art. I have always loved watching you work. Keep on layering and I will keep enjoying your journey.

    Great interview, my friend!!! It was great watching you and Connie interacting. She was getting so jazzed about some of the stuff you were saying. You didn’t seem nervous at all. Well done!

    Carolyn: I finally got a chance to watch your interview. We can all learn from you and your new outlook on your OOPS in art and life. Love the honesty and I think Connie loved it too. Congrats on your first (and many more to come) interview… Success.. Done!

    What a fantastic conversation, Carolyn! I can relate on many levels. So inspiring that I devoted a post to it on my own blog. More people need to hear what you are saying and your approach is so supportive and kind. Thank you!
