First I wish you all full moon blessings! May the old things be cleansed away and new, good things begin.
I've spent the day working on setting up a Weebly site, a Deviantart site, and a Facebook page. For months I have been trying to brand myself in some way. To come up with a name and all that sort of thing. Then it hit me today...I AM The Forgotten Muse. It's been in front of me all along. And so, that is what I'm going with. Yes, I might change my mind later. Then my work would start all over again. But for now, this is what it is.
I don't know why, all of a sudden, at this moment in time it feels so urgent to do this. It's just like "Do It NOW!!!" Get yourself out there. I'm in no real way ready to sell my art direct from me. But I will get there. In the mean time, I plan to offer prints from Deviantart. Though I have discovered that my DPI isn't high enough to offer larger than 5x7 in some cases. (Okay, I only have 2 things listed in my gallery so far. That's a huge step!) Hopefully I will be ready to share some of the links here soon. It's a step I am working on, a fear I am trying to overcome.
I know this means I seriously need to get and keep my ass in gear and paint my little heart out. That's a little scary too. In some ways I feel like I haven't much inspiration. I want to paint intuitively but quieting myself to do that is quite the challenge. But if I want to do this, it's something I need to overcome as well.
Last night/early this morning...I was having a dream. It was an odd dream. I was caring for an infant, it wasn't my child. I don't really know now who it belonged to. I don't remember if it was a boy or girl. But it was in my care. We were being chased. Someone wanted to take this child. Whoever it was, finally caught up to us and it was The Rock. Of all people! Then I wasn't sure if he was trying to take the child or help me protect it. I don't really remember. I feel like this might have some meaning to it, but I don't know if it's just my thinking or if it really does. I don't remember a whole lot about the dream other then The Rock, this infant I was trying to protect, fast cars, water and marshes.
Well back to thinking and planning.
