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
