Greetings and Welcome,
This is my first blog and I am learning as I go along. Please bear with me and give advice if you so desire. Creating a blog is something that I have been wanting to do but have a tad bit of fear that it would not be done right.
I am an assemblage artist and want to use my blog to share my art, ideas, and creativity or lack there of. Lately, there has been a lack in my ability to get ideas into pieces of art. Do you ever have times when your brain is like Grand Central Station? Ideas are coming in and going out so fast that they have not time to take hold? That is where my brain is right now. So, how do I slow it down enough for creativity to be productive and not slow it down to the point of no ideas at all?
Then there is always the monkey wrench that life throws into the plans of creating. Alas, that is also part of the problem. My husband has been on sick leave since mid December. Nothings is as it should be; nothing is normal. Though there is little that is "normal" in my life and that is where some of the ideas come for creating my art.
Thank goodness for my cats. They help keep me sane. There are times when they do drive me a bit buggy. Like when Kai Li wants to help me work on the computer or create. Have you ever tried to glue things together with a cat who wants to sit in the middle of it? This keeps life interesting and at times makes things better than what I first had planned. There are no mistakes in my art; just wonderful journeys to art that is at times serene, or art that tends to be uniquely original, or somewhere in between. What a wonderful journey this is. I do enjoy creating art to be appreciated by others.
Being that this is my first blog, I want to do something special for you. So, if you will email me a message stating what you do when your creativity fails, your name will be put in a drawing and I will send this card to you. (Ending date is midnight on 2/20/09.) I am looking forward to hearing from you and perhaps you will be the lucky one to receive this blog bonus.
