Not finished but I feel I have a good start on it...I'm to get together with another artist and we are going to do a collaborative projects...we are both new at this process. Not sure how it will work.
Boxes, bundles, books, and birds of some sort...and now I'm thinking of story telling too. Or a letter to go with it and we can go from there. Who knows..seeking right now...staying open for intuitive inspiration.
I wake up at 4:30 everyone morning...just my pattern or routine. Do my morning pages and read bit from different mediation books and other words of wisdom. And lately I've wanted to see what would happens if I did one every morning for 30 days. I also have this affirmation rocks that I pick one every morning too, and this morning the rock I picked said, "Thank Someone"
So with the day ahead...and reflections of yesterday, nice dinner and drive out to Woodstock IL for an art reception...I'm thinking of Thank You Greater Spirit in all living things for being a part of my life, it helps me see it bigger.
Feeling a bit of Oh pour me-ish'..and knowing that's isn't true...that there is so much to be grateful for. Art is a life savor....so I create this morning on the page...keeping any kind of emotional unbalance in a save place.
"To create means to relate. The root meaning of word art is "to fit together" and we all do this every day. Not all of us are painters but we are all artists. Each time we fit things together we are creating, whether it is to make a loaf of bread, a child, a day." Corita Kent
You have to trust in the process, because almost anything you do will get you there.
Sister Corita Kent Rules....
RULE ONE: Find a place you trust, and then try trusting it for awhile.
RULE TWO: General duties of a student — pull everything out of your teacher; pull everything out of your fellow students.
RULE THREE: General duties of a teacher — pull everything out of your students.
RULE FOUR: Consider everything an experiment.
RULE FIVE: Be self-disciplined — this means finding someone wise or smart and choosing to follow them. To be disciplined is to follow in a good way. To be self-disciplined is to follow in a better way.
RULE SIX: Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail, there’s only make.
RULE SEVEN: The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.
RULE EIGHT: Don’t try to create and analyze at the same time. They’re different processes.
RULE NINE: Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It’s lighter than you think.
RULE TEN: “We’re breaking all the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities.” (John Cage)
HINTS: Always be around. Come or go to everything. Always go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully, often. Save everything — it might come in handy later
My intention has been, often, to say what I had to say in a way that would exemplify it; that would, conceivably, permit the listener to experience what I had to say rather than just hear about it.
