finding my mojo
what to do when my creative spirit wanders
and i cannot think of what to do? my husband
reminded me that i always love taking a workshop.
great idea! this week i joined the ever creative well of
inspiration, jacki long's art gang at the art supply warehouse in a
mixdd media marathon. jacki is amazing! she demonstrated a
list of projects for us to jump in. all supplies are supplied. that did the trick!
between being in a group of creative folks, jacki's encouragement
and enthusiasm, i was off to collaging faces and thinking of other possibilities.
by the way, jacki has done a daily blog, for years. her current total is 1793!
i think she's going for a record.
i also decided that i love creating faces. sometimes we are the last
to be able to identify where our passion leads us when everyone else
can pinpoint it. sp, in in an effort to embrace this new information,
and to support myself,
i took my faces out of the box and put them on
my studio wall. i have many more and plan to fill the wall.
my vegetable garden also offered hours of
reflective time as my hands cared and tended
tomatoes, lettuce, zucchini, beans and other wonderful greens.
all in all, my attempts were successful at getting
me back on track. i also realize the we cannot have
a consistent stream of creative energy but it is snot often
where i get thrown off my center. like a garden, the soil is
fertile but needs to lay fallow to replenish its rich nutrients.
i would love to hear about how you handle fallow art periods.
