Trusting Myself, encaustic, 6" x 6" (SOLD)
It's a new year (thank goodness!) and I have several creative ideas up my sleeve. The hard part, though, is to know which ones to follow. I don't want to spread myself so thin with a jumble of half-actualized ideas. I need to focus. And trust my intuition, trust myself (hence the encaustic piece above). As part of my musing process, I thought I would ask you all what you think about a few of my ideas.
My first idea was inspired by the beautiful artist Bridgette Guerzon Mills of Contemplating the Moon. On her website, Amanobooks, she has a page for sending virtual cards (unfortunately, the link to the virtual cards page is broken at the time of this writing). She has 6-8 art pieces that you can send as e-cards. I love this idea! I've already started thinking about what art pieces might work well for this, and my brother Chris has agreed to work on the web development end of things. Are there any card ideas/messages you'd like to see for such a page, like "I miss you because you make me want to break dance" or "go get 'em, tiger"? I'd love your input on this.
My second idea requires a bit of boldness (see my blog post at The Healing Nest for more information about my burgeoning boldness): I aspire to facilitate more workshops. Over the past year I have given three workshops: two "Abundance Box" art workshops and one "Writing from Your Body" workshop. All of my other workshop attempts were canceled due to lack of participation. Sigh. Double sigh. But because I so love to plan for workshops, all of my energies were not wasted. I now have some tasty kernels to work with if I chose to give these workshops in the future.
But back to my current question: what workshops should I propose to the universe (okay, the Seattle area)? Based on your knowledge of me and your interests, what would you like to see me offer? A friend of mine mentioned to me that she wants to create art, but she doesn't quite know where to start. Another friend showed interest in learning encaustic techniques. I'd love to hear your ideas!
I want to move boldly into this new year, and I would love your scintillating ideas. Thank you!
