Week 6 of the Art Marketing Bootcamp, and let me tell you there have been days that it seems a challenge to keep up with the flow of information coming my way. I have to remember to prioritize, and to realize that I cannot do it all right away. Simplify is a key element in what I am learning. And what a valuable set of tools I am gaining to draw on...all to make it easier to share my art with you! I can highly recommend this course.
Journaling has been one recent addition to my daily practice from the course that is proving beneficial. I used to write on a daily basis, and had temporarily forgotten how the seeds of ideas can grow from those outpourings. I find that feeds the rest of the creative work, and is often more effective for me than a sketchbook. My artwork evolves out of the process of doing the work itself, rather than coming from sketches. By putting pen to paper, writing builds a hand - eye connection that can never come from using the keyboard.
Do you have a journal writing practice?
My stitchery kit prize has arrived from Margaret Blank's anniversary celebrations. This will be a fun small project. Thank you, Margaret!
I leave you with a sneak peek at another work in progress...
Things are moving slowly along with several projects...one with a deadline if I am to enter it.
