I know this is the year to take risks, big risks. What I don’t yet know is what those risks are. It is not that I am afraid to, far from it. I just don’t yet seem to be in tune with what a risk is.
I have spent the summer understanding the mind, it’s power and how to seize back control; understanding intuition and how to tap into it; accessing the unconscious mind and how to use it creatively; how to shift my perception from ‘left – logical’ to ‘right creative’. I am practising techniques for ‘letting go’. I have researched the work of dozens of artists, with the aim of gaining resonance within myself. I have spoken to Rosi in year 3 to determine whether it is an ‘age’ thing. My head is swimming and the term is only a few hours old.
I spent very little time creating last year, choosing to rightly focus on bringing myself up to speed with the art world, it’s history and it’s players. This year is all about identifying my personal barriers and blasting through them.
My aim for this year is quite simple. I want to produce authentic, contemporary work, preferably in watercolour. I would like to be recognised for what I am achieving.
