While you are enjoying your lawn chair this weekend, this would be a good time to journal a plan - an art making plan, for the next few months.
5 Actions For Your Autumn 2014 Art Making Plan:
So go ahead and plan some fun arty gigs - anything from checking out a new art exhibit at a gallery in town to taking a workshop, to messing about with your stash of unused art supplies. It can be an hour or two carved out during the week (maybe a lunch hour) or it can be a decadent outing on a weekend afternoon. Just make sure to schedule these fun and inspiring activities in.
Novelist Marie von Ebner-Eschenback wrote in 1905 that “Nothing is so often irretrievably missed as a daily opportunity.” You may not be able to get to your art making daily but you can make a plan that incorporates more art “opportunities” than you are currently enjoying.
Now go grab that cup of tea or glass of wine, your sketchbook, pencils and a calendar for plotting your plan and position that lawn chair just so...I’ll be thinking of you.
