Black Out Poem on an Old Book Page, while having breakfast.
- Do you bounce around from one interest to the next?
- Do you have some many inspirations you can choose what to do first? or
- Do you have a single focus and know exactly what you are going to do next?
screen printed napkin and coffee and sketchbook – alway time to make art.
I think as a mixed media printmaking I am inspired by a lot and often have time choosing what to do next, because there are so many things that I want to do:
- rip, tear, collage
Cast shadow to inspire stencils. Capture them with your phone.
I have been told that I need a focus. Hmmm? Sometimes I take that advice and consider it’s value. And I have reframed it to mean:
I choose a focus for this moment/project.
It does not have to be forever. It does not have to be right or perfect or even the”one” focus. It is just for now. This choice gives me the freedom to work and let go of all the other things that I want to do. It directs my attention to the present project.
My take away:
When someone gives you advice try being open to re-shaping that “advice” in a way the empowers and supports your vision for your art/life.
