I am taking Leslie Avon Miller's coaching class" Seeking Your Authentic Voice." We have a group of fabulous artists. We participate in an hour and a half phone conversation plus we have homework to do each week. The first week week our assignment was to write a life or artistic purpose statement . (Photo is of some items I will use to make an assemblage in a wooden cigar box.)
My statement, which may change at will, is currently: I am the flame that sings and dances. My warmth burns through fear and inflames and inspires others to manifest their own true selves.
This week we are creating an invitation to our artistic/creative selves. Mine was to go shopping for some art papers however instead I painted some white paper in the manner I envisioned. (Photo: another section of the cigar box. Can't show the theme as it is for someone who looks at this blog.)
I also feel inspired to add something to this wall hanging I made two years ago. I glued strips of paper onto tissue and then painted them. (Close up of paper textures)
Here is the wall hanging as it now stands. I feel it needs something in the center. I will have to play and explore around this.
I have also created book covers for two journals for myself. This one awaits binding, well they both do. I still need to fold 40 more sheets of paper for the inside of the second journal and then sew together the pages.
Interesting how inspired I am to do these little projects now that I'm taking the course whereas before I did not feel inspired. I am trying to complete some projects I have had on the back burner for some time. I hope completing them will leap me into doing some new, not even conceived of projects soon.
Regardless I am slow slow slow with all of this.
