"Art is the act of doing work that matters while dancing with the voice in your head that screams for you to stop." --Seth Godin
Does the above piece matter? Undoubtedly only to me. And that's just fine, because I know I am learning, and I know I need to practice, practice, practice. Creating small samplers is a great way to do that. There are things I like about this sampler, and things I don't.
The voice in my head is always screaming at me to stop.
But here's what I'm learning: I like the process of doing art, just the process, on its own. So what if it turns out well? So what if it turns out badly? I'm just enjoying doing it, in the moment.
<I do notice that a better camera might be a good idea>
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in the Cambridge-Somerville area). I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
