Our group has begun work again. We are back in the studio and it feels GREAT! Took a while to get us together, but now that we are I believe that we will be able to make a great start towards the promising Spring and Summer we have. Projects are dead-ahead. So, "Damn the torpedoes..."!
I want to thank the other members of the Nashville Collage Collective, Eva, Lisa, and Randy, for their support over the past year.
We are lucky to have each other for lots of reasons. Motivation! How do you get motivated when you are not a member of a collective?!!! I need everybody to help here and throw some ideas out there. Artists are floundering and we need to throw them a lifeline! It helps to have peers to rely on for motivation and support. When you don't have that, though, it can be hard. I know. Inspiration can be found almost anywhere, however, if one approaches everything with an open mind and heart. Pick one thing today. Just one single thing. Something you see, or something you hear, and take it in... really TAKE IT IN. This will be your inspiration for the next BIG thing that you do. It sounds simple. It's not. We are inundated with crap all the time, literally. But, if you can single one thing out and focus, you will have something to provide you endless hours of enjoyment. Draw it. Paint it. Copy it. Sculpt it. Write it. Rhyme it. Rehearse it. Move to it. Dance with it. Sing it. It's easy to say, I know, I know.... Depression is a BITCH! If you do pick just one little thing, though, you might feel a little better. Creation begins in the mind. Let it be free.
The Collective has begun work and will hopefully be posting photos soon of new works in progress.
Lisa held her collage party and it was a great success. Look forward to more.
Eva is in town.
Randy is in a great frame of mind and ready to rumble.
And, I am actually beginning to work again. yay.
Stop. Look. Listen.
