i’ve been feeling the urge to add structure to my life in all ways. i’m creating a new exercise and work schedule and encompassed in my work as an artist is this here blog too.
i think it’s fall coming. the beginning of school. the call for something new! do you feel it too?
i’m learning that as much as i resist structure sometimes it allows me freedom. the not needing to make decisions about the dailyness. i love working for myself because every day can be different and i don’t feel tied down to a routine, but sometimes it leaves me feeling a little weightless.
so with that in mind, i’ve been thinking about the evolution of my blog and how at first it was a place for me to chronicle my thoughts about going back to art school and it was incredibly personal and un-edited feeling and then in the last year or so i’ve pulled back a bit and experimented with feeling more “professional” and now i’m looking to integrate the two. my art is my life and vice versa. while i don’t want to include every aspect of my life here… and the general focus is still on my art and process, i’m inevitably affected by my life’s ins and outs with my art making and i may share that influence more fully. do you follow?
so my “structure” that i’m going to experiment with this blog is:
i also want to add that my blog is a place for me to keep track of my thoughts and connect with others and be part of an art community, so i love to read your comments and get to know who’s out there, but it’s okay if you’re quiet too. also, like a journal/diary i write here freely and with out much editing so typos happen! it’s important to me that this feels like a place where i can write loosely and as part of my artistic process vs. more work. therefore the above schedule is a little experiment that i may choose to abandon if it doesn’t work for me too 😉
fun to re-imagine my blog here…feels like adding some colorful paint or pillows to a room!
