#146 out of a thousand ways to have a happy artist's life - Remember times when you have been brave anyway

"Brave Anyway"  collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.
This one comes from an art challenge over on 14 Secrets.  The challenge has some nice links and basically was working with fear.  Maybe fear by itself is a little heavy and not not exactly fun or conducive to a happy artists life, or so you might imagine.  So I started with memories of moments of bravery, my own and others'.  I thought of times when I knew fear but faced it anyway.  I thought of family members and friends who faced fearful situations with grace.  And of course favorite stories almost always have this sort of element in them. 

So here's what makes me happy, remembering times when I have been brave anyway, and creating a piece based on bravery.  And appreciating the bravery I see all around me, every day!
