I recall some quote ... action has boldness in it ... or something like that ...
Well, goodness, gracious, me! I have surprised even myself today... I have had a desire to make a vlog for sometime... or at least give it a whirl... when I watch other favourite artists of mine chat into their camera and share their thoughts and feelings about life I JUST LOVE IT! So... I wanted to dip my toes into that wwworld. (you'll see below.. I did it!!)
I will show you a couple of art exercises that I have done ... in the last few days actually!! I'm taking an online class called Lifebook . The first exercise we were asked to draw/paint our Fairy Art Mother, we were to write down whatever our inner critic was coming up with and have our Fairy Art Mother speak KINDLY to us ... the teacher Tam did an example and this is my version of that very first lesson:
What did my inner critic say to me you might ask? "Returning to childlike art is stupid, you're making a fool of yourself".
Yup... so my Muse (superior Voice who I am enlisting for her ongoing assistance, clarity and all round kick ass fabulousness), had me do this:
Yes, I swear. Sorry about that, as a wise friend of mine said to me, if we didn't need that word then it wouldn't exist.
Next, ... we were given another lesson by Tam depicting our journey in 2013 ... we were to give ourselves a 'vehicle'.. write our current blessings on the clouds, and our goals on the flowers. I realise this is totally out of all proportion, my head doesn't seem to fit that body quite right... but WHO CARES... I am making this adventure in Lifebook about giving it a go, a red hot go and not getting all precious about perfection... read above for fairy art mothers advice!
Then... we had a delightful example of using stamps and pictures and words to make a 'doll' .. depicting us and the words it would take to 'give us wings' this year. I am certain my Muse came to the fore for this exercise.. I almost heard her shouting the word WILD at me ... and so... I dived in to some magazines (didn't have enough cool stamps) and whala... this happened.
And YA KNOW WHAT????
only a few days after that .... today... I created my very first vlog ... it kindof got more serious than I intended but it is a beginning... so I'm happy with that.
