It has taken me a long time (for a blogger) to sit myself down and actually decide how to proceed in this new year ... chatty Cathy has left the building.
I have been filling this slump by reading many blogs where, in this new year, reviews of the last year seemed to be popular posts complete with oodles of photos.
Or, where self-questioning re; focus, series or no series, new directions, to blog or not to blog were the topics.
Still others went straight to their next project with gusto ... amen !
I have been in an art slump for many months ... having an extended holiday season didn't help. Losing a valuable connection with a local group of artists due to changes at an art centre last fall, doesn't help my drive to create, either.
I have been questioning my reasons for blogging. Blogging, when I first started, seemed to me to be a great way to meet lots of artists and find inspiration from artistic enthusiasm. Absolotely successful endeavour ... I have met many wonderful artists friends by blogging ;) The downfall, though, is trying to keep a presence on their blogs, to say, "I'm still here, I love your work, I cherish our connection".
I will continue to blog, I have quit Facebook (freeing up more time), and will continue a documentation of my reason for being ... soon ;)
As to my slump, cleaning and sorting in my 'studio' is the current action ... soon great ideas will emerge, I'm sure.
So, if you are wondering where Sharron is, know that I am working on it.
