Process is what its all about…Unlike getting a job where there are externally imposed expectations and duties, I have none of that! sounds fun right? SOoit is good and other days I manage to do alot of other things like laundry, garden, read the newspaper, doom scoll 😦 But then I realize that during those times of doing nothing I am actually filling my mind with ideas of things to try in my studio, things to look up, and adding to my list of influences to acknowledge.
Things I have accomplished: updated my Etsy Shop , where my annual calendars notecards and a few new works on metal can be found-and more is on the way. Updated my WEBSITE on WordPress, which allows me to also create a blog where I can easily update what I am doing, working on and thinking . I left FACEBOOK , take that Zuckerberg, so I hope that this WordPress tool will reach a more focused audience. I am exploring the fun and unpredictable world of cyanotypes and have started working with watercolors.
One thought on “Following my bliss…OR Finding the courage to identify myself as an artist!”
I love that you are doing all this. The site looks elegant and appealing. And your concerns and worries are all valid. The world needs your help. Gingko trees are amazing. We had tall one — a male, thank goodness — in the backyard of our previous house. On the day that it dropped all its leaves after a cold night, you could hear the shushing of the leaves coming down.
