A New Year…But An Old Word
Dear ART Friends,
Upon much pondering this year, I cannot move on from the word I chose last year. If you have followed my progress in my art journey, each year I choose a “Word to Accept”. (this word is my mantra for the year). And, I choose a “Word to Let Go”.
I’ve done this exercise since I started creating art over six years ago. It seems like a simple thing….choose a word and get onto the next item on the agenda. But in actuality, it is like having a strategic plan; in art, in life, and in business. This one word encapsulates what I’m trying to achieve for a particular time frame.
The word I chose last year was to “CREATE”. Create What you ask? ….the idea was to create my 40 odd pieces of artwork to have on hand to place me in a good position to be able to apply to commercial galleries. I did not complete this task on my list.
2018 was indeed a weird year.
From speaking with my friends, I think it was like that for many people. Projects did not go the way I had planned, my schedule was messed up and I did not produce as much work as I would have liked. So this is it; its’ the year to achieve this word so I can move onto the next project!
