# 19 Do you need more?

This is one of the spray painted backgrounds that I'll be teaching in my new workshops Angels and Mermaids. :) I'm not finished filming yet, so I can't give you any details.

Last week I talked about soul hunger and how my soul hungers for passion. In relation to that, a question was posted in the comments.

Donna, Doni, Lady D asked me: Does your art not fulfill your passion. Do you need more? Do you know what it is you are missing?

Not all the time and yes, I do need more. I was asked once, if I paint every day and my answer was no. I'm not one of those artists who feel the need to paint everyday. I make myself do it for a challenge for a month every now and then but it becomes a chore more than enjoyment. I'm more likely to paint a couple of paintings at once than one every day.

I'm not sure if I know exactly what I'm missing but at the moment I feel like I need to travel. I used to travel every year and I guess that somewhat filled my soul. My last vacation was in 2010 and I'm long overdue. :)

Thank you very much to Donna and everyone else for your questions and helping me blog everyday for Blogtoberfest. If you have a question for me, leave it in the comments. :)

Linking to Paint Party Friday as well. And you still have a chance to enter the giveaway for $100 amazon Gift card. :)

P.S. I'm a part of this awesome e-book Spark and Inspire that Robin Norgren put together.

This is her blurb:

Within these pages you will find the voices of over 40 creative entrepreneurs who run their businesses both online and in brick and mortar stores, who run workshops and sell in shows, who have a range of experiences and have been in business from 1 year to more than 25 years and who offer you no nonsense information on their processes and how they have been able to keep moving in tough economic times and how they have found a way to let good ideas go when the money was not in line with the dream. We are talking on a range of topics from collaborations to big leaps that did (and did not) come together as planned. We are talking about how to get at the soul of your business and how to stay excited about the work you offer the world.

  1. Wonderful background. There is an artist in my local city center who does airbrush art in the middle of the street, it attract so much people and he can do some amazing things. I'm in awe of what you can do with a spray can. Fantastic.

  16. Fantastic splash of colors, Natasha May. Like you, if I force myself too long to do challenges, it gets to be a chore. Maybe it's better to limit them?? anyway, I love crafts as much or maybe more than painting at the moment. I love to make greetings cards. Some of them have hand painted things on them. Most don't.

  26. The background is looking good! Makes me wonder how it will all beat the end when you are done :o)
    About the passion, I guess it happens to many people, that at one point you need to do something different, unrelated, to get a punch of energy again...
    Not everyone feels it, I have learned, but I guess some of us are more restless lol

  27. I love this background......

    It looks like a graphic style to me, like it would be in a comic with a super hero(ine) in the forefront.

    Where is on your travel wish list I wonder?

  28. Lovely pic. Makes me think of light in the midst of darkness. Here is wishing you an awesome holiday!

  29. Love the mash of depth and color!! In search of passion I would delve deeper to find more interests. I was surprised to find the artist within at 47... all types of creativity fills me to the brim...wish I knew that sooner!!

    Other than travel, if money were no object what would you do right now?

  31. Nat, this background gives me the same feel it gave to Missy K? I expect to see some super hero flying thru the intense heat- explosion of it's abyss. Really nice work and I luv the Q. & A, curious at heart and makes for good understanding of the artist behind the blog.
