I have been working a lot, getting up early, going to bed way too early (from exhaustion)…BUT… writing my morning pages has helped to clear away a lot of junk in my poor little brain.
Julia Cameron suggests “Artist’s Dates” on your own… making a date every week with yourself, alone, and sticking to it. She also has a contract you are supposed to commit to, I have to admit, I have only stuck with the Morning Pages. It is a 12 week “program” to help your creative side emerge. BUT I suppose you could apply it to anything in your life, not just art.
I also purchased a book “The Artist’s Way at work” and it helps with your business and working side. Anyway, I must stick to this, I have committed to myself that I would, and I want to follow on through with it. For my birthday I got a few vouchers from Amazon.co.uk . Well, I’m at a fork in the road at the moment. I wanted to teach alternative healing therapies, but my “artist” voice was screaming from the rooftops to go down the Art Road.
So, I am following that road. Many people may say that is the wrong one, but at the moment, it’s what I dream about, it’s what I think about all the time… “I wish I could paint like that” … and “why couldn’t I do this and that in art”…. Well, I am never going to get better if I don’t practice. And I want to do so much!!!
So here, I am starting my journey. I have had this WordPress blog for almost a year, and haven’t put it to use, so now, I have decided… I’m going to use it. I mean, it DOES have my name on it… http://www.cindywilliamsart.com
I am so happy I have finally found my true calling, and it feels natural too.
