So what’s in the pipeline for Emerald Dunne Art 2018? I’ve already looked at blogging plans for Stars & Stems. But what about my art, the reason for the blog in the first place?
I like new year resolutions, though I don’t usually start them on January 1st. Luckily I’m not too bad at sticking to them. Successful ones so far have included learning Italian and starting a regular yoga practice. And in fact beginning an art career itself sprang from a resolution. So it makes sense to have a few goals for my creative practice for the coming twelve months.
To do this I’m reflecting on not only the work I want to produce, but what needs to be done and how I need to be in order to do it.
Or the things that I want to create and learn. On this page I speak a little about the reasons behind the name of this blog. So to remind you, stars are the things I aim for – creating my art as well as the artwork itself and where I can shine:
Ooooh, stems! Considerably more of them because the lead the life I want takes work. Stems are the sustenance, what feeds me and therefore my art. But also the hard graft needed to get me there:
Meanwhile, I’m glad to see that I’m not the only artist who thinks of their creative year to come. Have a read about what the wonderful Helen Wells has to say about the exercises she sets herself in order to focus. And how she views January 1st not as an arbitrary date on the calendar, but a chance to press the reset button.
Artists and creative peeps – do you have any plans for this year or any projects on the go? Leave a comment below.
