I’m working on papier mache hearts that I need to have ready soon for a gallery over in Pasadena, and trying to clean my art room and then starting a batch of small figures and getting my torso ready for the Art doll round robin i am hosting. Oh! and working on my paper toy for nicebunny.com!!
I’m wishing all my art buds complete unbridled creativity in 08. And for collectors and appreciators who read here, may your eyeballs never run short of the candy, and may those extra bucks find their way into your pockets so you have the money to grace your walls or your life with the imaginations of the artistically inclined!
For my art buds, remember that artists, like writers and musicians are magicians, creating from nothing, with a germ of an idea we create the magic that feeds the soul, and the spirit. So, whether you do it part time or full time, may your well not run dry this year, may the ideas overflow as you wake each day with blissful intention and may your adversitys, your road blocks and mind blocks be minimal.
for those of you raising kids, or working jobs, here is hoping you find the time to sing your soul, at least once a week, at least for a couple of hours. That is my wish for you.
While I would love for your etsy shops to explode with sales, its not really about the sales. Heres hoping you explode with enthusiasm for developing your own vision, without fussing or fretting about what people think or if it will sell or not. When you create for the joy of it, for the learning of it, when you lose time while doing it, then you know you are living your best self as its about the journey, the outcome is simply the residue of that journey. Not happy with the first one, it means you are suppose to make another, and another and another, as an artist it is your job to create! quit cleaning the studio and buying more supplies! create! and that is what god wants you to do, and remember you don’t have to show every thing you make, be your own best critic and don’t let dissappointment paralyze you, let it compel you, be on a mission, the more you make, the closer you get. Let your intuition direct you, no fear this year, thats my philosophy, hope you like it. XO
