Re-energizing Your Creative Journey

As artists and creators, we are all on our own unique creative journey. Sometimes this journey is filled with momentum, flow and ease. 

And sometimes our journey is rocky, difficult and filled with fits and starts.

When we are at our best, we are able to offer up our unique artistic vision. We are able to refine that vision and create a substantial and consistent body of work with a distinct point of view. We are able to create with a clearly developed style, technique and approach.

We are able to focus on the one subject or genre that generates the most enthusiasm within us. And then, we are able to immerse ourselves in creating with our vision, our heart, our soul, and our passion.

This requires clarity, focus, consistency, curiosity, playfulness, risk taking, mistake making, failure, hard work, and most of all, building and maintaining momentum.

It also requires being open, giving ourselves permission, losing ourselves in process, emphasizing the joy of creating rather than on achieving results, and a willingness to want to learn.

If you need help with any of the above, then my new workshop, RE-ENERGIZING YOUR CREATIVE JOURNEY, is for you. It will be held at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (in San Luis Obispo, California), June 8-10, 2018.

We will focus on each artist's subject matter, technique, style and creative voice. 

We will analyze and discuss your work. 

We will look at what is working and what is not working. 

We will decide what you should keep doing and what you might consider doing differently. 

We also discuss how you can make your work more unique, distinctive, and more ‘you”.
