I am signing up for an Art Journal class. I know a lot of the basics, but I need a jump-start to “play” again. During this illness, I’ve had ideas for paintings and other things, but I quickly lose steam moving forward. I had this when Joe died – and I took a Bob Ross painting class to jump start my creativity back then. It worked. Just being out with people helped – people who share those artsy frustrations.
But planning also is a big step. While on chemo, it was just going to chemo, relaxing through the side effects and bearing through them. No plans, no schedules – it wouldn’t matter – I could not tell if I was going to feel well enough to do anything.
Well, I am further complicating things by actually paying for the class – now I know I will go if I have to forfeit $45 for two days of class. HA – cheap old me. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I finished Shiprock yesterday – will post some photos later this afternoon.
