When I was 17 I remember thinking I needed to figure out exactly what I was going to do with my life by the time I started college that Fall. I don’t know who was telling me to do that, but it seemed like a pretty big deal and I was serious about it. First, I was going to be a Physical Therapist, then a Psychologist. I ended up with a B.S. in Psychology, but worked in advertising, as a stay-at-home mom, a photographer, jewelry designer and then ten years as a Real Estate Broker.
What happened between age 17 and now is somewhat irrelevant, but in hindsight I wish I would have realized sooner the importance of taking the time to figure out what I was called to do. What was I truly good at besides studying and getting good grades? What was I passionate about? What made my face light up? I mean like really light up?? What was I actually made to do? After all these years of doing what I thought I was “supposed” to do, I allowed myself to ask the right person the right questions and then I actually listened for the answers -- Divine intervention at its finest and with perfect timing.
Hi. My name is Wendy Stevens-Mizée and I am a painter. I began painting on December 27, 2016. I live on the Oregon Coast outside of Tillamook (yes, where they make the amazing cheese) with my three children and fourth generation dairy farmer (Tilla-Bay Farms.) I am an untrained painter and it hasn't been all that long since my first brush strokes, but here’s what I’ve learned so far:
Painting is really messy and I love that about it! Paint on my hands brings me joy.
Painting and sharing it with others creates amazing new relationships.
Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. What one person loves another will despise.
You can’t please everyone with one piece of art. So, more is better!
Waiting for the approval (or disapproval) of others stops creativity dead in its tracks. Listen to constructive criticism, but keep painting. Keep painting. Don’t stop painting!
Art brings joy to others. There are few things in life as wonderful as this.
My inspiration comes from nature – The ocean, the woods, water droplets on blades of grass, the way light touches everything. I hear people say nothing is perfect, but I’m telling you these things are perfect!
There may be more to life than painting that I have yet to discover, but the direction I’m heading in today feels very right and yes, it does light up my face. Like really lights it up! My husband and children tell me so.
