During the Creative Process
Status quo anyone? I confess, I have lots of questions. I even surprise myself sometimes by my questioning of the status quo. There lies within a higher self that challenges me (the me who wants to belong and fit in).
You know that higher voice—the “mother hen” in your head that asks you if everyone is diving off the cliff does that mean you’re going to do it too?!
This higher self is what creates the unrest. It’s like having an internal compass that won’t allow for getting too comfortable. On some level we know dissatisfaction is a beautiful thing. We stretch and reach, toss and turn. In our search from this unnameable thing within that simply will not let us rest, not let us call it a day and go home.
P.S. I once knew a lady who was closing her art gallery because she had become dissatisfied with the retail side of it. She was wanting to spend more time traveling to places like Europe. The gallery was one she had owned for 6 years and I had stopped by to see about getting my work shown there. She apologized but said she was ready to move on and do something else.
Note: We’ve been having fun reading all the great responses to our ‘getting to know you’ campaign–if you missed it, you have until June 25 to get in on the fun (and get your name in the hat for the $200 Gift Certificate for Blick Art Supplies..I know you need more art stuff!)
I’d love to know more about you—your tastes, loves, your interests!
