Find Your Style

2017 is already off to a busy start - a new online workshop and a new exhibit. And now I can add another project to the list. Find Your Style is an an ebook compiled by Kristal Norton. Kristal is an artist, writer, and creative guide. She offers several e-courses as well as ebooks on art, journaling, and creativity, so she definitely speaks my language.

I was honored when Kristal asked me to be part of this project, and I couldn't say no. I'm a big believer that the universe answers if we are willing to listen, and so it was with this project. Out of the blue, this wonderful offer to share my small story came about, and I put together a short write up about how I have found my style. I join eleven others who share their stories and a little bit of advice on how to find your style.

Connection and Collaboration: A Call for Participation

As I mentioned in my last post, I've been exploring a web image that represents my connection to others, and in the vein of connection, I am looking to undertake a project that calls for Creative Collaborators. As I have explored this idea, I've been feeling the need to involve others, and this is where you come in.

I've had a few people ask how I make this imagery, and that has trigger an inkling of an idea. I want to include others into my process and have this idea evolve into a true community collaboration. I am picturing a simple process - have others create their own web imagery, share it with me, and I'll create a work of art that responds to and incorporates their imagery.

If you are interested in collaborating with me, it's quite simple, so follow these steps.

1. Email me saying that you're interested, and I'll email you back with an agreement for collaboration and other pertinent info.

2. Watch the how-to video that I posted on YouTube.

3. Make your own web image. Be as elaborate as you wish.

4. Photograph or scan it, and email it to me. Make certain that it's a good quality image. I find my iPad takes great photos for this purpose.

And that's it. The rest is up to me. I'll make a piece of artwork incorporating your image. What that exactly will be? I'm not certain, but I won't make an exact copy because it is important to me that you retain all the rights to your original work. I'll probably do some layering or such by projecting your image onto a large piece of paper. I just don't know. I'm looking forward to seeing just where this collaboration will take me. I'm looking forward to the discovery.

I hope that some of you will want to be Creative Collaborators. Thanks in advance.
