I've been trying to make my blog better, mainly by adding different types of content like "Featured Artists" and links to other blogs and artists that I like. But when I sit down to type I just stare at my blog and then think "Hey I want to change the background" or I end up rearranging my gadgets. I spend an hour playing around with the look of my blog without really adding any content.
I will be taking my yearly "mommy getaway" in two weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with lots of new content and links. My main goal, however, is to figure out how to post pictures directly to my blog from my iPhone. (I think that photos make a blog) If I am able to do that I will be coming up with a new category of art called something like "How my brain works" because a lot of times I get asked "How did you come up with that idea?" so I will take you on one of my creative expeditions.
I will also be posting a lot of new things I'm working on for The Newport News Fall Festival. Oh, by the way, I was accepted into the Newport News Fall Festival last week!!!
- I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
