I have the title of my book.... drum roll please:
The Artistic Mother: A Practical Guide to Fitting Creativity into Your Busy Life.
I am very excited about that title. I think that it pretty much sums up the main focus of the book.
I have often picked up wonderful 'how to' books and magazines, filled to the brim with ideas and new techniques, I get so inspired and want to do everything in the book, right now!... but then real life crashes in on me and I have to do the laundry, make peanut butter sandwiches, potty train etc. For a long time I never got around to doing some of the projects I wanted as being proactive with my time and maintaining the motivation for art didn't come naturally. I wanted a workshop, a 'real life' schedule, a clear path laid out for me, instructing me on how this self taught art life was going to actually fit into my life. Well, in reality no one was going to do that for me. So I learned how to do that for myself.
And now, I have written that path down in this book.
Unfortunately, it won't available until next Spring. Fortunately, the folks at North Light Books are total pros and will make sure this book does exactly what it is meant to and look exactly how it is meant to.
In the meantime, do you like the title????
