Another up-cycled Flower created today

Photo Friday: Your Creative Space
C4ward March Blogathon: Day 7 Prompt
Today and next Friday are PHOTO FRIDAYS with a theme. PHOTO FRIDAY is day where you can write nothing or something. It is up to you! Part of blogging every day is finding ways to make it sustainable. Having one day out of every week that requires only photos can provide a much needed break from using words. Today’s theme for your photos is to show us your creative environment in 5 to 7 photographs (fewer or more if you want).
Interpret “your creative environment” in any way that fires you up and embodies your artistic self. What do you want to show your viewers about the space your imagination inhabits and works in?
Literal spaces: studios, classrooms, theatres, offices, streets, stages, clubs
Figurative spaces: your mind, body, the cosmos, the source
Tools of your trade: canvases, brushes, keyboards, puppets, microphones, costumes, computers, inks, paints, fiber, sewing machines, cameras
Creative outcomes: Various images of your work, perhaps in different stages of development or format
Companions: You or others pictured in your creative environment, including animal companions
This will do just fine 🙂
Here is the prompt for Day 6…
Your Perfect Year of Making Art
C4ward March Blogathon: Day 6 Prompt
Imagine one perfect year of art making. Be bold and allow yourself to envision what the ideal situation would be like to you. Tell us about it! Draw or paint it! Sing it! Dance it! Write a poem!
“”Some aspects to consider (but not necessary):
- Where are you geographically?
- What does your dream work environment look and feel like?
- How is your studio equipped?
- Who are you creating or collaborating with?
- Who supports your daily life as you make your creative work?
- How many hours do you spend creating?
- How many hours do you spend selling your work or managing the business end?
- What do you do for recreation?
- What do you do for inspiration?
- Do you have any specific goals for this year?
EXTRAS FOR CONSIDERATION: Why aren’t you doing this now? What is preventing you from having your perfect year of making art? What action(s) could you take to have some of this perfection in your life now?””
It is asking a lot, but what it is really asking is, what would be the perfect year for my art.
Time in this case can be bought.
I am one who is more for love than money, but if I had enough money to pay the rent, my car payments/insurance/gas, clothing, food , saving the world etcetera etc….
That could be a perfect year in the life of my art.
So I will, through pictures, and sounds demonstrate this…..
