Art City Austin
What to do when feeling blocked? I don't know if you have noticed or not, but I have not been painting or posting much in the last week and the other interesting thing is many artist I follow are saying the same thing, it's in the air, how 'bout you? It's such a strange phenomenon, I want to paint but just can't seem to do it. What I tend to do is tell myself I'm lazy and yet I know I'm not a lazy person. Gosh what a great motivator, being mean to myself, yeah so I asked myself how's that going for ya? Not so well.
Moving on to Plan B, thanks to Julie Cameron and her wonderful book, The Artist's Way, she has a cure for this. She talks about having an artist play date with one's self. Instead of being mean to myself, I'm going to show myself some love and fill up my artist's well. So today I went to Art City Austin with my good friend Debbi Smith Rourke. What a great way to touch all the five senses; this is how the Going Austin web-site describes it:
"Upon entering the temporary art utopia, expect to hear live music from Austin musicians, smell fresh, organic food prepared by local chefs and experience visual art of various mediums."See more pictures on the Austin Art Buddies facebook page
