So far, all of my blogs have been about what I’m doing art-wise, exhibit info., creative guest bloggers and the like, but today I’m doing something different. How many of you, artist or otherwise, feel an intense need for changes in your life but you feel stuck? Well, that’s me! I’m in my 40’s and don’t feel like I’m close to where I’d hoped to be by now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled to be doing art full time and am very grateful for the successes I have had…and I know that times are especially rough for artists to make full-time living earnings…but yet there’s still something gnawing at my gut that things aren’t where they should be in many ways.
So, I’M STUCK! And it’s not for a lack of taking action…I’ve been told by many people that I’m one of the hardest working artists they know and I’m always looking for new opportunities, networking with and supporting other creatives, exhibiting my work, promoting it, working on new things…but it’s like trying to focus on one star in a sky of many…when you try and look directly at it, it seems to become fuzzy and disappear. When you avert your gaze it’s, back again. The “big ideas” are right there…you can almost taste them…but when you try to pin them down they fade, become hard to materialize. Has this happened to any of you? If so, I’d love for you to post comments and share your experiences…that’s part of what blogging is about, after all…to connect & share. 🙂
All I know is there needs to be some major changes in my life to get “UN-STUCK”…and then maybe some of the creativity that’s lurking like a fuzzy star in my brain will shine brightly!
