In the middle of the pandemic, the implications of our communications comes to the forefront. In the absence of what was “normal”it becomes more considered and, with that consideration, more valued.
Being an artist isn’t just starting at the beginning and moving forward in steady measured steps. (Though it can be, if that’s how you are). For me it’s a pattern of learning to notice what I’m attracted to, and running with that idea for as long as it takes.
Last blog I wrote about how creativity was everywhere in my daily life. This month however, I want to talk about how to add some actual art to our lives. In real time.
Facebook and You-Tube can feed an art habit, but I firmly believe we need to step away from the phone-screen, and the small-screen, to experience art fully.
It’s not about giving up our day job (even though I did). Even an occasional visit to an art gallery, play or film will make a difference.
