Ebb & Flow
I want to say thanks to those who signed in last night for Art Nurture's first ever Webinar, "Top 5 Benefits of Nurturing Your Creativity". After about 15 minutes of technical difficulties, which I simply had to laugh at because everything worked great until people actually began logging in, I was finally able to get to the material. Sadly, the visual presentation I had prepared was not able to be shared and the start up was lagging to the point where I thought I would have to call the whole thing off. Thankful for those of you who were on the patient stand-by waiting for me to get it together with the computer issues, seriously, thank you, very much. I will be working on a recording of the class with the visuals and hopefully will have that ready for you and posted on the website within the next couple of weeks.
I realized last night, that even though I'm not a super tech savvy person, I have learned a lot in the ways of the "interwebs" and whatnot, but that ultimately it is not my thing. It is a tool I am passionate about learning because of it's ability to speak with others and thereby reach out and encourage and inspire others to live more creatively, as I can share the ups and downs of the creative life from my experience and the experience of those around me. So... I press on in my discovery of all things computer and technology, as long as it is helpful to the previously expressed mission.
Today, the day after my tech overload, I felt the need to play in my studio a bit. A couple of weeks ago I hung my first show of the year and the studio is a bit empty since all of my most recently finished work is hanging up at The Junction for another two weeks (still time to go see it!). The ebb & flow of my energy is such, that I need to mix it up, to rest in one way and to experiment in another. I started working on a project I had stopped after only a few short minutes of dedication about 6 months ago. I picked it up again and it felt a little more the "right" time.
Sometimes, I find myself ebbing away from one thing and flowing right into another. To push through is sometimes the right decision and sometimes the wrong one. I suppose the level and type of resistance is what can hint you at whether or not you continue on. This is the game when it gets personal with your art. This is what makes it ever interesting and ever expansive before you. So, the ebb is away from technology, at least for a couple of days and the flow is into a revisit of an old project, hopefully breathing some new life and energy into the work.
