Wishcast Wednesday....


Our Shepherdess Jamie has asked us today....What do you wish for your creativity? As always Jamie taps into what we need...she has a gift that way! This one has been on my mind a lot of late...as the market has been rough for artists. Up and down and all over the place!

I have been thinking about the direction of my artwork and photography. After several unfortunate experiences with the photography I have gone on back to doing it for me...as a hobby and a joy. I am considering opening an Etsy shop with my fiber arts(knitting, crocheting, tie dye, quilting etc.)...am still thinking about this one. But the artwork still remains my focus of my heart.


I have been doing quite a few pieces of the sea..I am drawn to her..the sea. I find real peace in creating these little pieces. Tide pools and sandy bottoms. They started as ACEO's - baseball card size and are growing in size..the latest one is huge LOL! I get pure joy out of creating them!!



Being a bit anal and being the breadwinner here...I am always focused on the market..what time of the year, the holiday..which I adore, the seasons. I love working through the seasons..the holidays..I really do. But now and again..I just want to paint whatever I want..and just keep doing it until I am all done with it. I know artists who do this...just go where ever their little hearts lead them. Let the emotion take them as it will...Let Fly with their muses!! Hmmmmmmm.....I wanna ...I really do... go off and play with my muse..follow her lead and just do what my heart desires...I wanna try it for a bit anyway!

So this is my wish for my creativity...that I can relax for a while and just go with the creative flow. That I can get enough kiddos in my preschool group this fall to relax about the money (big need here)... so I can see where my muse leads me art wise. I am curious to see what she offers up next!!!

What do you wish today?? Namaste, Sarah

(i hope this is okay...reading your post, my personal wish for you would be that your creative flow would align with your market...that they wouldn't have to be exclusive. times are tough right now for many of us, so wishing big for you re funds so you can relax.)

Please don't give up on your photography, you are so talented with a camera!

Tammie Lee said...

I always love seeing your charming art. I love that you are doing art that you are drawn to do at this time. You are so talented in so many ways. I think photography is one of the hardest ways to earn money and many people say so.
wishing you
your wishes come true

Great wish Sarah and I just heard from your fairy Godmother that she has waved her magic wand and granted it, so off you go and create to your heart's content. Just make sure you come back here and share it all with us!

Hmmmm sounds like trust is needed here. Trust in the Universe to send the kids and to send the customers. Trust your heart and instincts. Maybe take some time to read one of the many "law of attraction" books out there. A good one is "Creating Money: Attracting Abundance: by Sanaya Roman. She says a lot about letting go and trusting. Your watercolor is gorgeous! I love watercolor and it takes a special talent to work well with that medium. And the photo of your art table is fun! I love seeing people's work space. Just keep on doing what you're doing while letting go and trusting...it will be fine.

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for her too!

Cynthia said...

Sherry Byrum said...

What Sarah wishes for herself I wish also!

I love your mermaids Sarah. You have a talent for the water, you seem to be drawn to it, follow your heart.

Seeker said...

As you have said, so it is true, and is on its way. :-) Both on here, and in your wonderful comment on my blog! All of it!

But you asked: "What do you wish today?" So in addition to wishing for all that you have put out there for yourself, today I wish for, believe in achieving balance, learning to let go of "busy" and replace it with "focused" And I wish for rest and rejuvenation. Namaste to you as well. A virtual bow to all that is divine in each of us.

This post was just a delight to experience - your wish, your words, your art, your photography - absolutely delight-full! I can't wait to see what you get up to when that muse has some time to 'go with the flow'!
