The last day of AEDM2010 has been both a reflective and a productive one. I have spent a couple of hours creating background papers for future art using pearlescent acrylics, fabric dyes and ink. Below are a few examples:
I made more than is shown here but I struggled to get a good photo with all the pearlescent and metallic paints I used. I enjoyed this creating today because it allowed me to experiment and get messy :-)
So along with the header at the top of this post - that was the productive part of my day. The reflective portion included musing on aedm2010. I'm pleased to say that I produced art 29 out of 30 days and posted 28 of the days. This is extra special to me because it shows that I've been in good enough health to do this. Hurrah! I have enjoyed.....:
In addition I've used this time to focus on where I am on my creative journey. This year I've worked hard trying to be present in the moment, following my intuition and allowing myself the freedom to create. I've consciously explored how being creative is linked to my health and well being. During this month I've developed, clarified and explored these things further.
- ...connecting with lots of new inspiring creative people
- ....trying new techniques and ideas
- ....feeling supported by a lovely Internet community
I know I recently changed the look of my blog but further changes are afoot and in the next couple of days you will see more alterations that will incorporate the look and message of the banner at the top of this post. Within the next week I'll be offering free blog buttons, adding an inspiration page to this blog and getting started on the interviews I'm planning. The interviews will introduce creative people working in a variety of ways and focus on how creativity affects their well being.
Thank you, all the people who've left me lovely comments and inspired me this month - it has meant a lot to me. And a BIG thank you to Leah for organising Art Everyday Month - my experience has been invaluable.
Wow - that sounded a bit like an Oscar acceptance speech. Lol :-)
How was Art Everyday Month 2010 for you?
