welcome to 2009
It is going to be a good art year. I feel it, I am committed to making it so.
In the latest Cloth, Paper, Scissors Chrysti Hydeck has a great article on creating layers in digital art. I love being inspired by books and magazines, I love having something in my hand to curl up with on the sofa that then makes me bound up to my studio/computer and get working. I created this photo using her directions, I like the texture.
And my smiling, happy artistic Lily is the perfect face for my 2009 art vision. Ahhh, if I could go back in time and be a child like Lily, happily creating everyday.... sweetness.
I have been laying around for a few days nursing a cold going over and over my vision and goals for this year. I have distilled them down a little. Each line and word represents so much to me, but I want to be succinct.
Here are some of my goals. I feel by posting them here I am going to held accountable:
write an artist statement for each group of photos, art work and poems
learn more about my new lens and decide on my next purchase (tripod, lens, photoshop ???)
listen to/read a poem a day
re-organize my craft room and kids craft shelf system
do a craft with the girls every Friday and Lily & Laura one on one at least once a week
take my camera with me daily
meet every AOC and North Light deadline
blog once in a while until I turn in my manuscript, after that.... more
visit 5 art blogs (art or photo) a day
re-read all the photo 'how to' books I own
work with Shannon at least once a week on our Motherhood art project
work on the sculpture path at least once a month, write up the proposal and get commitments
.....I may add to this list, but this should keep me going for now....
