Welcome to 2017!
I started the year thinking “I think I’ll blog again” — even though I’m told it’s not “in” anymore (so sounds like a perfect thing for me to do!) Admittedly, I doubt very much it will be the daily blog that I did a few years ago, and I don’t know if I’ll concentrate on photography or making posters & memes at all, or if I’ll include any images of paintings or drawings I may do.
Quite frankly, right now I’m not sure what this will be.
I’ve been in kind of a holding pattern. For too long. I don’t exactly know what I want to do, or where this will take me, but I know that I need to jump in & get the hell out of my own way!
In defense of my actions (or lack there of) I did get tired of having my hopes dashed: people in my life expecting free art, hearing “friends” say they’d rather get cheap art at a big box store than purchase mine, declined entries in shows, declined entry in masters program – I even got denied a place in a permanent show at a children’s hospital (I assume, since I never heard back from them, but if I see my artwork anywhere in that building, there will be an issue…) That’s a lot of NO!
The big question is: how does one come back from that? Well, that’s another thing I don’t know.
What I do know is that it’s time to get out of the self-inflicted lack of creativity that I’ve been in for a while now.
Speaking of, I also still long to live on a farm. In the country. Fresh air & wide open spaces to spark my dormant creativity. It’s my happy place – currently residing only in my dreams… for now.
So, come along with me on this journey if you choose, it will either go well or it won’t… but I won’t know unless I do it. Right?
Thanks for stopping by!
