Chapter Eleven Check In
This week was mostly about success as an 'artist' - I don't think this just means a commercial or monetary success, but emotional as well...and keeping the enthusiasm as we reach creative plateaus. There must always be a bigger goal - for if we actually 'make it there', strangely enough we will find that 'there' disappears. Julia likens the artist to a shark, which must keep moving or drown.
1. Did pages every day this week...some were a bit truncated (mostly after the root canal...which kinda wiped me out). I did kinda recommend doing the pages to DH, but so far he isn't buying into it.
2. Artist Date was building the lap hoop with my Dad.
3. No major synchronicities jump out at me...but I did keep seeing images of a particular animal that I want to incorporate into a future project.
4. I am more convinced than ever that the Artist Child is actually the right side of the brain. Will be exploring this more over the next few months as I work thru the Drawing book. Any technique for shifting to the creative mode is welcome.
Did a bunch of the tasks but they are pretty hard to share! I did get the 'Creativity Notebook' but haven't finished working on that task...its a long one!
