Julia Cameron The Artist's Way
For several months I have been participating in Paula of Happysnappy's online The Artist's Way book club. The great part of this book club is that there are no expectations. You can go through the book as you like. You can do all of the exercises or none. It is entirely up to you. Each Sunday, we post our reflections or insights from the previous week. Again, no expections.
I have also been participating in Art Every Day Month for the month of November. I began by wanting to create something everyday. Then it became my personal goal to also post something everyday. I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world and this has been an extremely rewarding experience.
I chose the above quote this Sunday because of the wonderful support I have received from the artists who are also participating in one or sometimes both of the above groups. I am definitely not a professional artist but I am someone who loves art. I appreciate the art of others and as I grow and learn about my own likes and dislikes I realize I do have a style that is uniquely mine. My work doesn' t have to look or sound like anyone else's. It just has to reflect what I believe and what I am trying to accomplish. I want to thank everyone who has supported my efforts to become better at what I create. It has been wonderful to feel so richly supported by so many talented and gifted people. Now, I can't wait to see what the next step of the journey will be like.
When you share your dreams with the world, magic happens!
