I know I will be visiting Practical Magic sites for days...every single blog I have gone to is fabulous. That sounds soooooooooo ordinary for such EXTRAORDINARY work! The photography, the writing, the spellbooks, the music, the jewelry, the collection of magical pieces...I could go on and on!
I, personally, was very intimidated about doing this project. I felt like my attempt would be rather elementary in comparison to others. I realized in the last few days of creating - that I wasn't doing it to be judged or compete... it was for the experience and WOW it has been a pleasant one.
I know have to ask, what is my blog about??? I started this site to make myself DO ART. I am a wanna-be artist. What type of art??? Started out just trying to learn about watercolors...in the two years that I have been trying to become a blogger/artist; I have done altered art, ATC's, acrylics, learned about gel medium, pastels, and sooooooooo much more. I am a dabbler in all and master of none. I read once that your art blog should only display art!!! Not talk about family, friends, pets, yadda yadda. But as I continue to blog I realize I want to (and do) talk about my family, my friends, my dog, yadda yadda! Does that mean I am not a true artist (wanna-be or not). I also have rediscovered my sense of magic! My mother definitely used white magic while I was growing up... we would sprinkle I don't know what in front of all our outer doors to keep evil spirits away. We would burn, again, I don't know what by the light of the moon. She has always been holistic even though she was a medical assistant. She is a healer using energy work...she also had the most perfect little shop of beads. Gemstone jewelry and metaphysical stones...the people that came to the shop we amazing. She was a bit ahead of her time and location wasn't good. It was just a break even operation and finally after 5 years we decided to close her doors. I now some 25 years later wish we hadn't done that. She was most happy those 5 years. So, I guess I am asking - can I mix all this together and keep posting??? Can I put some magic conversation into learning more about art? Is it okay to be a wanna-be in a world where most visitors are "artist" whether it be through writing or paint & glue.
My Sunday morning thoughts as I sip my coffee and look out my window to the world. The sun casting great shadows from the tall pines! I am in a dreamy state of mind!
