Blogging and Painting, Painting and Blogging which came first the chicken or the egg? Well I did paint before I started blogging, but I have to admit it just wasn't as fun. Blogging added a new element--other people! The painting is the expression of me being my me-ness, but without the blogging platform I would be in my own little vacuum being me, whoop-te-do. On the other hand, I really can't imagine blogging without showing my paintings.
I heard recently that the show or the performance is what completes the creative process and is essential to nourishing the creative juices. I really can't imagine a comedian or actor getting very good at their craft (or having as much fun) if they just did their performance in the bathroom mirror by themselves all the time, day after day, week after week. The audience is needed isn't it?
