The last month has been RICH with creative experience.
First an art retreat.
Then, I jumped into Art Every Day Month and began pumping out art for myself, my friends, and two art shows
that I finished this weekend.
At the end of this creative streak…I remembered the wisdom my friend Gail shared with me about the creative process. I want to share that nugget with YOU.
This process can be an essential element to safe-guarding your creative momentum. It can be scary to take a break because we think it means we might turn the creativity OFF. But my experience is that it conditions us for more creativity.
For me, I was able to jump back in with a new energy and a new enthusiasm for my work.
This new piece (still in process) is being created for a show coming up in a few weeks.
Here’s what it is about: Is 2012 the End of Times? Doomsday? Armageddon? Well, if this is indeed “The End” my friend, K Space Contemporary has a “Final Countdown” for you! “The Apocalypse Show” is a huge group exhibition of artists from all across Texas and features their unique takes on the end of the world scenario. It’s also K Space’s 5th Anniversary this year so please come down, experience a fantastic show and help us party like it’s “1999”! If this is “The End of the World As We Know It”, you won’t want to miss possibly the last show ever!!! It’s going nuclear!
I started the new piece today, using the techniques I learned in Paint Mojo but using death, chaos, destruction, renewal, and resilience as the focus for my work.
The Beginning of the Process
