Getting Back to Art

And reinventing myself again...

I’ve spent the better part of the last 6 months working almost solely on my book. I haven’t really been drawing or painting since I started. Between that and being in summer mode since May, I've been missing the process of creating handmade art. Now that the book’s finished and I’ve promoted the hell out of it to the best of my ability, I’m happy to let the universe take over, move away from the computer and get my hands dirty again. Researching, writing cover letters, putting together mailings and being on top of social media for the purpose of the book’s awareness and sales were not much fun for me. It was a bit of a struggle and a little out of my wheel house. Sometimes I wonder if I should have hired someone to help me with that... it's all a learning curve. So what am I going to do now? I have so many projects and ideas saved in Pinterest that I want to try and experiment with using different techniques and mediums. I also have a bunch of bookmarked YouTube video tutorials on everything from acrylic paint pouring to unusual watercolor techniques that I want to watch. (That’s binge watching for the creative.)  Reinvent, reinvent, reinvent yourself. That statement has been my motto since I left the graphic design field. I am so ADD when it comes to my art. I get bored with what I’m doing after a while and need to start something new and different. I always seem to make my way back to creating mandalas, sometimes in a different form and I never stop taking photographs for inspiration and the pure love of looking through the camera lens. So next week it's back to work in the studio; I wonder where my next idea will take me...
