TORN BETWEEN LOVE
Torn between the love of your children, spouse or (significant other) and the love of making art. Do you wonder how as a parent, or working person you will ever find the time to sit down and create? It can be difficult, especially when inspiration is not always happening. Right?
I often wake up early and go to the computer look at photo blogs, and just think. Then, when I go about my day that brainstorming, I did earlier will incubate.
I found that I work best talking to fellow artists, and through meditation, and writing. It is a clearing…a way to get centered.
Ester Perel is a couple’s therapist and a fascinating speaker. I’d like to share with you what she says are the three components in a relationship. I think they are also appropriate to making art.
Imitating other artists
Identifying with other artists
Internalizing and producing our own art.
Let me know your thoughts, how you create or whatever you would like to share.
