Whether I liked it or not, I have noticed that things do change…in the last few years of my life, change has been present. I think I used to be hesitant of change, and then I noticed I no long felt that struggle. It happened regardless of my approval.
And then I realized that some of this change I was initiating. Is that what happened with my art? I felt stagnation in my art and I needed a change of direction. I didn’t know then that direction was STOP. I felt I had been following the same routine, using the same supplies, even though I would change things up. I was still very much ‘vintage inspired’ and I wasn’t happy any more creating art. Or selling it, for that matter. Etsy has sure changed my ideas of selling, and not for the good. I think a lot of us, agree. But I won’t go into that. So much of it I still do not understand.
So days I toy with the idea of collecting supplies that do not inspire my anymore, and donating them to a school, or finding a good home for them. We all know how much money we have tied up in supplies... then I think, maybe I will use them. So for now, I am not judging my lack of creating art, I am simply ok with it. But when I decided to go back to blogging, I was curious...what would my blog be like? Would my art friends follow? What do I call myself now? Do I start all over, or simply rename my blog? As you can see, I renamed, and so far...all is well.
This is part one of change... regarding being a mixed media artist. More about change and what I have learned, in the days to come.
