I’m not comfortable with going deep. Letting go and allowing the “process” to take over. Basically, I guess I’m not comfortable with giving up a sense of control. That, as I am learning, is what art is all about. Not a crazy, screaming wild letting go (although if that works for you, and it dosen’t hurt anyone go for it), but letting myself be intuitive to my inner self. See, that still sounds wonky to me…but I’m working on it. The book, The Artist’s Way, encourages you to write positive affirmations. This is one I particularly like: The Great Creator has given my the gift of creating and to create is my gift back to Him. My talent is not just for myself. It’s to share. Not only with people, but with my Creator.
Part of this journey is learning to play again; to not have to control my art so that it is “approvable” by other people. To trust myself and just let go. So I’m practicing the fine/ fun art of scribbles!
This was fun, you should try it…even if you’re a writer, poet, sportman, whatever. Go scribble. You might be amazed just how good you feel afterwards.
