The Artist’s Way

The Artist’s Way

I have recently started on a new and interesting journey. It’s called the Artist’s Way and is based on the book by Julia Cameron.  It is a 12 week road to self discovery.  So far it has been frustrating, rewarding, surprising and quite bumpy. A group of four of us have embarked on this journey together and one of the first things I had to do was to enter into a contract with myself that I would stick to the tasks as well as I could. I’m not entirely sure I would have got to this point had I not made that conscious decision (letting the other three down by pulling out has also possibly contributed.)

Now what I would like to do is to write about my travels through both the Artist’s Way as well as my life of creating. I’ll be posting photos of my work and writing about the thought processes, maybe techniques, pitfalls and triumphs encountered along the way. I’m planning to use this page as my sounding board. Let’s see how long I can keep it up for.

See you back here soon,
